Learning and resources on gender in education
Creating Supportive Learning Environments for Girls and Boys
A guide for educators
This guide was created by IREX education specialists with the contributions of secondary school educators from nearly 70 countries across Eurasia, South and Central Asia, East Asia and the Pacific, the Middle East and North Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa and the Western Hemisphere. Teachers who used the tools and strategies included here reported increased leadership roles for girls and boys in their classrooms, increased awareness of how gender inclusiveness improves classroom planning and teaching, effective methods for countering negative stereotypes of girls and boys that impede learning, and success in implementing gender empowerment projects in their schools and communities.
