Is Gender Equality Attainable?
ESL news-based lesson plan
For years we have been speaking about the need for gender equality and progress has been slow in many areas. The question now remains: will we ever attain gender equality? In this ESL lesson plan for intermediate to advanced learners, students will explore this question and more.
Students will develop an awareness of challenges associated with gender equality. In addition, they will learn new vocabulary to talk about the gender issues. The listening section of the lesson is based on the video “When Will We Reach Gender Equality?” by the Harvard Business Review.
It focus on practicing key skills related to listening, speaking, collaboration and critical thinking. You will need at least 90 minutes to complete this lesson, if used as a flipped ESL lesson. However, lesson can run up to 3 hours ( consider two 90-minute lessons or for university teachers adjust as needed).
While targeting intermediate and upper-intermediate language learners of English, it is highly adaptable as it have been purposely designed to faciliate mixed-levelled classes. This includes in a tertiary institution such as a university or within a professional environment, targeting professionals.
