Summary "Persona Dolls are used to promote social justice. They help to empower children and develop their understanding about people unlike themselves. They give them the skills and confidence to stand up for themselves and others when they encounter discrimination. Drawing on evidence from hitherto unpublished research, the book describes the effectiveness of the Persona Doll approach and validates what has until now been assumed but not substantiated. The power of Persona Dolls to challenge discrimination at the foundation stage and at key stages 1 and 2 is explained in psychological and sociological terms and illustrated by case studies of their use. Equality in Action presents compelling arguments for implementing inclusive and anti-discriminatory education, and provides a concise overview of equality legislation such as the Race Relations Amendment Act and relevant statutory and non-statutory requirements. Countering inequalities is no longer an option. The book is for early years practitioners, key stage 1 and 2 teachers and learning support staff, local authority advisers, Further and Higher Education lecturers. Readers experienced in combating prejudice and those new to this important task will find much to enrich their work with children and students."--PUBLISHER'S WEBSITE.
