In the Classroom

Gender & Society in the Classroom

Resources for Teaching Gender

Updated January 2019

Gender & Society has a wonderful opportunity as a leader in feminist scholarship to offer syllabus and lesson plan assistance to those who want their students to deeply engage with gender scholarship. The incredible articles we receive use sociological and interdisciplinary approaches to gender analysis and work wonderfully alongside other content to create a fully engaged classroom.

In the future we hope to offer you a pedagogical tool that uses Gender & Society articles alongside the activities, podcasts, digital media, t.v. shows, and other tools you use to help students understand the social world as gendered.
