  Role - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A role (sometimes spelled as rĂ´le) or social role (in sociology) is a set of connected behaviours, rights and obligations as conceptualised by actors in a social situation.
Roles are not limited to occupational status, of course, nor does the fact that one is cast in the role of "doctor" during working hours prevent one from taking other on other roles at other times: husband, golf club president, father, and so on.
Role conflict is a special form of social conflict that takes place when one is forced to take on two different and incompatible roles at the same time.

 Gender role - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
However, some have argued that gender roles themselves are abstractions of overall differences between men and women, introducing the idea of circularity and the idea of the social reinforcement of natural tendencies leading to a factitious separation between the activites of males and the activities of females.
Gender role can vary according to the social group to which a person belongs or the subculture with which he or she chooses to identify.
When an individual exhibits a gender role that is discordant with his or her gender identity, it is most often done to deliberately provoke a sense of incongruity and a humorous reaction to the attempts of a person of one sex to pass himself or herself off as a member of the opposite sex.

 Role-playing game - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The gamemaster's role is to provide a world and a cast of characters for the players to interact with, and to adjudicate how these interactions proceed.
These games often have little to do with the dice or random number generators used by some players to determine outcomes; rather, characters are created and manipulated by their players in the form of a large interwoven story, using only the imagination to determine what occurs.
This type of role playing can be a form of fan fiction, with players taking the roles of characters from their favorite movies, television shows or books.

 Role Playing in Education
Role playing, a derivative of a sociodrama, is a method for exploring the issues involved in complex social situations.
Role playing uses dramatic devices such as having the players make "asides," comments to the audience that the other characters have to pretend they haven't heard; this allows us to reveal what we think but are not able to say.
Role playing is a methodology derived from sociodrama that may be used to help students understand the more subtle aspects of literature, social studies, and even some aspects of science or mathematics.

 Role-playing - Definition and Other Information
The character may be a character known to be fictional - such as Hamlet or Joan of Arc - or it could simply be a character based on the way in which someone wants to be perceived, such as 'innocent' or 'trustworthy'.

 Milton Friedman on The Role of Government in Education
The role assigned to government in any particular field depends, of course, on the principles accepted for the organization of society in general.
The role of an economist is not to decide these questions for the community but rather to clarify the issues to be judged by the community in making a choice, in particular, whether the choice is one that it is appropriate or necessary to make on a communal rather than individual basis.
The role of the government would be limited to assuring that the schools met certain minimum standards such as the inclusion of a minimum common content in their programs, much as it now inspects restaurants to assure that they maintain minimum sanitary standards.
