Teaching Gender to Secondary and Tertiary Students

This online training course is comprised of a series of five modules on teaching gender to secondary and tertiary students. The modules are intended for teachers and facilitators to engage youth in gender-based discussions of agricultural careers. The goal of the training for youth is to enable them to consider career paths primarily by interest and skill rather than being limited by an internalized or societal gender bias.  The modules include concepts of “sex” vs. “gender,” household dynamics, activities outside the home, and societal influences on traditional gender roles in agriculture.
