TEXTBOOK: GENDER ISSUES TODAY
--book publisher change tba when available--

In 2005 GALE members and others collaborated to jointly write an intermediate English level textbook that would provide an introduction to gender issues to non-native speakers. The title of this book, which emphasizes active learning and critical thinking, is Gender Issues Today. The classroom activities "activate" all of the original seven multiple intelligences identified by Howard Gardner and all Myers-Briggs type learning style preferences, in an effort to accommodate all kinds of learners.This book is currently being used successfully by college teachers in Japan but has been found useful also by some overseas educators.A review of the book (by an EFL teacher based in Thailand) can be found at: http://www.efltu.org/reviews/genderissues.htm
Themes of the 16 chapters of Gender Issues Today include: What is gender? Gender socialization, Gender and language, Gender and family issues, Gender and employment, Gender and violence, Gender and health issues, Sex work, Gender stereotypes, Masculinities and men's movements, Heterosexism, Reproductive rights, Gender and the environment and others.
