Written for teachers at all career stages, and with teacher educators in mind.
THERE ARE AS MANY WAYS OF LIVING GENDER AS THERE ARE STUDENTS IN YOUR CLASSROOM.
From kindergarten to senior year and from the drama room to the biology lab, Teaching about Gender Diversity will help you deliver rigorous, meaningful lessons that meaningfully integrate gender diversity alongside essential disciplinary and interdisciplinary knowledge.
Divided into three sections dedicated to the elementary, middle, and secondary grade levels, this practical resource provides lessons for a variety of subject areas, including English language arts, STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), and health and physical education. The lessons range from reading aloud early literacy picture books that use gender-neutral language and highlight the gendered experiences of characters to engaging mathematics in the study of targeting gender terminology, stereotypes, and the social construction of binary gender.
Written by teachers for teachers, this engaging collection highlights teachers’ specialized knowledge of pedagogical practices for the diverse contemporary classroom. More than 30 contributors from across North America provide their varied perspectives on the timely issue of teaching about gender in the classroom.
