Seeing through the Lenses of Gender: Beyond Male/Female Polarization.
English Journal, v88 n3 p96-99 Jan 1999
Describes how a high school English teacher uses the metaphor of "lenses" to help her students learn to see through the eyes of another and come to understand their experiences. Discusses how this fosters students' awareness of gender as a lens to view the world; reduces their resistance to acknowledging other viewpoints; and encourages awareness of gender polarization. (SR)
