Reflection: A Lesson in Manhood, Day 1 of 2 - Section 3: Manhood Today


While I usually assign groups, I allowed students to choose their own today (and choose between manhood and womanhood in those groups) because of the subject of their work. For some students, prior [random] discussions have shown me that feminism is a major issue of interest. These students probably wouldn't have given me as much effort if they couldn't choose to explore womanhood rather than manhood. For others, being allowed to choose their own groups is a reward for working well in previous lessons. The occasional free choice helps keep community strong.
