A Journal of Research With creative ideas for experiential activities that span various learning skills, this book can provide useful material as well as inspiration for instructors. For other social justice educators, this book may also be helpful as some of the activities can be adapted to discuss issues surrounding race or ethnicity. Journal of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgend Youth The scholarship on women, gender and sexuality has been steadily expanding since the s.
But there has been much less scholarship and dialogue about Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies pedagogy. This volume makes an important contribution to this much-needed discussion.
It is full of useful activities that help teachers and students negotiate some of the minefields present in the Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies classroom. Linda Nicholson, Susan E. Louis The strengths of this project include its wide range of topics covered and the wide range of learning and teaching styles addressed.
Overall, I think this is an exciting collection of thought-provoking exercises which can not only be used immediately in the classroom, but which will also offer inspiration to instructors in terms of thinking outside of the box we often build for ourselves. Overall, I found them instructor-friendly and appropriate for the designated students. After teaching for a while most of us have a repertoire of activities, but new ones are always welcome. New professors will love this.
I would buy this book. The types of activities range across many potential course applications. I have not seen another similar book and I am happy this one is forthcoming. Overall, the materials are absolutely appropriate for the college classroom.
Many would also be appropriate for an advanced high school student. Additionally, some of the content would lend itself to stand-alone or workshop type training settings. The ideals of active learning are highlighted in many of the sections and the activities in many cases appear to be ones that the student would find memorable and clearly able to make important points.
I would both purchase and recommend this book. I was impressed with the content well beyond my expectations. There are numerous activities that read as fantastic experiences for the students and instructors alike.
I look forward to seeing this work published. Gender and sexuality studies professors at last have a go-to source for innovative, active-learning exercises that address the politics of diversity and social justice.
Each chapter offers hands-on classroom exercises that offer creative and intellectually rigorous approaches to working with a significant concept, problem or question. This is a wonderful, wide-ranging book whose influence on pedagogy in the field will be felt for a long time.
