Fortbildung des Goethe-Instituts Chicago für Deutschlehrkräfte zum Thema: Gendersensibler Deutschunterricht

Referent*innen: Franziska Trepke, Lena Braun
Samstag, 24.09.2022, 9:30 – 14:00 Uhr
Goethe House Milwaukee


In diesem Workshop für Deutschlehrkräfte beschäftigen wir uns mit dem Thema Gendersensibler Deutschunterricht. Angefangen bei der aktuellen Relevanz und einem Überblick über die verschiedenen Varianten einer gendersensiblen Sprache, besprechen wir die Dringlichkeit von inklusiver Sprache im Deutschunterricht als Spiegel derzeitiger Diskurse in Deutschland. Hauptaugenmerk der Fortbildung liegt auf der tiefergehenden Auseinandersetzung und Aufbereitung von Unterrichtsmaterial, welches wir auf kritische Formulierungen und Darstellungen untersuchen und für das wir gendersensible Alternativen erarbeiten. Im Plenum sprechen wir über die Herausforderungen und Chancen, denen Sie in der Umsetzung eines gendersensiblen Deutschunterrichts begegnen, diskutieren offene Fragen und verweisen auf hilfreiches Unterrichtsmaterial.
Bringen Sie gerne Ihr eigenes Unterrichtsmaterial mit, um es gemeinsam zu sichten.
