Teaching about Gender Diversity

Teacher-Tested Lesson Plans for K–12 Classrooms

By Susan W. Woolley, Lee Airton


Teaching about Gender Diversity is an edited collection of teacher-tested interdisciplinary lesson plans that provides K–12 teachers with the tools to implement gender-inclusive practices into their curriculum and talk to their students about gender and sex. 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. Teaching about Gender Diversity is an ideal resource for students taking education courses on gender, sexuality, diversity and equity, curriculum design, and professional practice.
