Confessions from the Classroom
I offer these lesson plans for use in your classrooms, broadly defined. They can help to guide lessons in both schools and communities. I have chosen to link them to the curriculum documents of the Ministry of Education in Ontario, but if you are an educator in another region, I am hopeful that you might find similar connections within your own context. The lesson plans in this section are the lessons I used during the gender workshops I conducted throughout my research, as well as an example of how the data in this study can be used to create a lesson plan. I have chosen particular grade levels, but they can be adjusted to meet the needs of other grades as well (I frequently adjusted the lessons to meet the level of learners at different ages). Throughout the lesson plans, I reference multiple subject areas, and especially the The Ontario Curriculum, Grades 1–8: Health and Physical Education (Ministry of Education, 2015). This is a strategic choice because as I write these words, the radio and newspapers are featuring teachers and parents struggling with the challenges of a new health and physical education curriculum, both ideologically and practically. If we are to achieve greater acceptance of gender diversity, we need a progressive curriculum, educators who are willing to follow it, and the resources to support them. ← 129 | 130 →
