Kissam, Ed; Dorsey, Holda
This module, which may be used as the basis for a workshop or as a special topic unit in adult basic education or English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) courses, discusses men's changing roles. It is designed to provide a framework for exploring how differences in language, laws, and ways for participating in the community and differences in the way in which members of a family relate to each other affect men's lives. It also explores some issues relating to men's roles in relation to women outside the family--in the workplace and in community life. The module contains the following: an overview of the topic; the specific skills that the module emphasizes; and teaching points, learning activities, resources, and commercial textbooks. A sample lesson plan begins with a cover sheet with objectives (learners and context, room setup, to bring, to do ahead, media used, and steps). The lesson plan indicates time required, materials required, and teacher and student activities. Other contents include overhead transparency masters, handouts, presurvey, and postassessment. The objectives for this module are as follows: study roles of men and women in the home; analyze potential changes; give advice; and role play positive ways of discussing a problem. (YLB)
