‘William’s Doll’ – Lesson Plan

During December we will be sharing the lesson plans published by Highland Council’s Equalities Improvement Group and LGBTI+ sub-group to support the development of Equality and Diversity across the curriculum. 18 picture books have been selected; for each picture book there have been lessons created for Early – Fourth Levels (Curriculum for Excellence) driven by the Literacy and English and Health and Wellbeing Experiences and Outcomes.

Today’s Lesson: ‘William’s Doll’ – Charlotte Zolotow

More than anything, William wants a doll. ‘William’s Doll’ was published in 1972 and was one of the first picture books to deal with gender stereotypes.

To support the health and wellbeing of our children and young people we need to challenge gender stereotypes. ‘William’s Doll’ is a brilliant text which does just that.


Kindly created and shared by the young people and adults within the Millburn ASG Equality and Diversity Working Group and the Highland Council’s LGBTI+ sub-group of the Care and Learning Equalities Improvement Group.
