Lesson overview

Have you ever wondered why women are paid less than men? This lesson helps us understand the never-ending gender pay gap. You will find a topic-related video, vocabulary practice, and discussions, followed by adjective comparison explanation and exercises.



The lesson starts with a discussion about a graph showing parents’ share of household responsibilities.


Reading: Gender pay gap

The student reads a passage explaining the gender pay gap and factors that affect it. Then, they answer reading comprehension questions. New words and phrases are extracted from the text for the student to match them with their meanings (come down to, shrink, gap, deadline, etc.). The student uses the new vocabulary to complete sentences.
