There’s been lots of discussion lately whether BBC’s decision to cast a woman in the lead role of Doctor Who was either right or wrong. Inspired by the whole fuss, I planned a lesson based on the issue and the gender stereotypes that surround us. The students seemed to enjoy it and the issue triggered lots of discussion.
The main aim of the lesson is to practise students’ reading sub-skills by giving them the chance to predict the content of the text and the content of each paragraph. Secondarily, the students will have the chance to practise their speaking skills in the context of gender stereotypes.
