April update has got a bit long, sorry. It’s mainly because of IATEFL and ELTONS.
Two interesting points from John Gray’s talk, Gender and sexuality in ELT…
- Gray notes from his analysis of 10 top-selling ELT textbooks that there was ‘a blanket avoidance of any LGBT representation’
- He promotes ‘… a collective effort on behalf of teachers, teacher trainers, materials writers, textbook reviewers, etc to come together to create learning environments that address gender and sexual diversity.’
