Teaching Gender to Secondary and Tertiary Students
This is a series of five modules on teaching gender to secondary and tertiary students. The modules are intended for teachers and facilitators to engage youth in gender-based discussions of agricultural careers. Youth may make career choices based on the gender norms of the adults around them without critical awareness of their internalized gender bias. These modules show teachers how to challenge youth to critically analyze whether they are basing judgement of tasks, skills and responsibilities on sex or gender norms. The goal of the training for youth is to enable them to consider career paths primarily by interest and skill rather than being limited by an internalized or societal gender bias.
Module 1: Introduction
Module 2: “Sex” v. “Gender”
Module 3: Gender and Household Dynamics
Module 4: Gender and Activities Outside the Home
