Randolph, Justus J.
Online Submission, Yours Truly v12 p16-17 2005
In this article, I discuss a method for teaching EFL students about language bias. The method involves (A) introducing vocabulary, (B) activating knowledge, (C) giving instruction, (D) group and individual practice, and (E) reflection. I also summarize guidelines for teaching students about the use of gendered pronouns, gender-loaded nouns and verbs, disability, and sexual identity and sexual activity. An example of a language bias quiz, using biased statements quoted from well-known public figures, is provided.
