Gender & Diversity

Gender and Diversity © Goethe-Institut

LGBTQI, feminism and gender equality are issues that young people in Australia are currently grappling with a lot. Schools are increasingly paying attention to making lessons gender-sensitive and addressing non-binary gender identities. Unfortunately, rigid role models and heteronormativity are still conveyed in the selection of images and topics in many textbooks. The materials presented here offer the opportunity to counteract this and specifically include gender and diversity in your german lessons. The materials are also suitable for up-to-date cultural studies that focus on dynamic developments in Germany.
