Gender in the EFL classroom

Whilst putting together a lesson on the topic I was surprised how much I could base it on stuff I’d already done over the years:


Gender in the language classroom – LINK FIXED


Adverbs of frequency gender policy discussion

Gender roles case studies

Gender specific vocabulary

Gender discussion, including on acceptable gender differences

Personality and appearance gender guessing game (a bit long!)

Present Simple Men and Women guessing and answer key

    Hi Alex,

    Thought this was a great resource to share with teachers so I’ve just posted a link to this on the TeachingEnglish facebook page if you’d like to check there for comments.

    Please feel free to post on the page whenever you have anything you’d like to share.

    Thank you for sharing those practical, evocative, and wide-ranging materials. Given the potential mishaps, I’ve often avoided gender discussions in class but the personality and appearance worksheet seems like a very vocabulary rich way to address the topic. Good job!

    PS. As you know, we often have to be rather careful on PC topics in our classrooms.

    Thanks for the encouragement and link love, always feel a bit guilty about linking to myself like this and bored by the process of doing so, so always good to get some motivation
