Description:

A few weeks before teaching Antigone, I hand out this survey to the staff at my school. From the information I receive back, I create a matching quiz that asks students to match the staff member to a job he/she previously held. I try to put careers on the quiz that are typically associated with one gender. This gives the students a chance to look at gender bias, a key issue in Antigone. We discuss why they assumed things about different staff and careers.

Reviewer Comments:

This simple survey is designed to gather information about gender bias from a high school staff. Its purpose is to use the data collected to facilitate a quiz and subsequent class discussion about jobs men and women have held and how these fit with stereotypes. The survey is offered prior to and in conjunction with a larger unit on Antigone.

I would like to see the sample lesson plan for Antigone. I am a new teacher and would like all the help I can get to guide me in the process of making my lesson plans.
