Stage 3. Socio-psychological analysis of own gender roles

The third stage is devoted to reflection and introspection.

Exercise 1

This task is aimed at identifying gender stereotypes of students. The teacher suggests to investigate own gender stereotypes, having carried out the following task.

Each participant is asked to respond in turn to the following questions.

1. What did they say to me in childhood (parents and other adults) about what a girl / boy should be like (qualities of character, duties)?

2. What information came to me about the relationship of a man and a woman (patterns of behavior)?

3. What "messages" do I follow in my life?

The work is conducted in pairs. Each participant is given 7 minutes to complete the assignment. It is very important that the participants answer the questions in turn: first - one answers questions, the other - listens carefully, then vice versa. The teacher keeps track of time and announces when participants should change roles.

At the end of the work the teacher asks to share each participant with the results of his work.

Activity 2

Based on the results of the previous assignment - identified gender stereotypes - students are asked to make a list of their own gender roles and describe them according to the scheme of the second task of the second stage. The teacher recalls the scheme for the analysis of gender roles.

In conclusion, the teacher asks for feedback.

1. What are your own gender roles?

2. What roles are you more hindered in life, and which ones are helping?

What did not you expect to get in the course of this assignment?

At the last stage the feedback is very important, since the pronunciation of the results primarily discharges the emotions caused by the task, encourages the formulation of personal conclusions, allows you to learn the experience of other people.

At the end of all stages of the session, the teacher asks students to take stock.

1. Gender stereotypes are broadcast to a person throughout their lives and form gender roles.

2. Gender roles represent a certain pattern, a model of behavior that characterizes the "masculine" and "feminine". Gender roles prescribe not only certain actions, but also adherence to certain beliefs and values; operate in a certain context, have a clear focus, benefits and shortcomings.
