Unformatted text preview: Men vs. Women and the “Perfect Mate” Teacher Day Time Branch TA Class Resources needed: • Copies of handouts (attached below) Aim: Students will begin class by listing the characteristics of what they believe to be the “perfect mate” Stage: Warm-up Page: Time: 8 – 10 min Method: • Divide the class into male and female groups (males on one side of the room, females on the other) • Divide the board in half • On the female side of the board, write “the perfect man”; on the male side of the board, write “the perfect woman” • Give the students 5 – 6 minutes to brainstorm (amongst themselves) what they believe to be the perfect mate. Elicit a couple examples and write them on the board to get them going. • When they’ve finished brainstorming amongst themselves (or after about 5 – 6 minutes) have them write their thoughts on the board • Once both teams have done this, go through the answers and elicit responses from the class (agree/disagree; why/why not, etc). It’s best if you play off the other side (i.e. Men write the perfect woman is a fantastic cook—Ask the women, “Is this realistic?” Comments Aim: Students will discuss acceptable flaws in a mate. Stage: Practice Page: Time: 8 – 10 min Method: • Ask students if there is such thing as a “perfect mate” • Ask them to look at reality: everyone isn’t perfect, we all have “issues” • Ask students to, in small groups, discuss what “imperfections” are tolerable, and which are not • After 4 – 5 minutes as elapsed, handout the discussion questions below • Go through the questions with the class as a whole, ask different students to answer Comments Aim: Students will read and discuss two “Dear Abby” articles.

Stage: Practice Page: Time: 8 – 10 min Method: • Handout the list of characteristics • Instruct students to read through the list and mark an “A” next to what is acceptable and a “U” next to what is unacceptable. • Once just about everyone has finished, go through the list together with the class. Elicit reasons for “unacceptable” traits Comments Aim: Students will talk about what they would do “if” they went to their partner’s house and discovered the following. Stage: Practice Page: Time: 8 – 10 min Method: • Handout the “What if” handouts • Instruct students to discuss these situations in groups • After 5 – 6 minutes has elapsed, discuss the questions together as a class Comments Aim: Students will discuss whether or not men and women are equal in society.
