Gender Responsive Pedagogy

In a nutshell, quality of education cannot be achieved without addressing the gender dimension. The Forum for African Women Educationalists (FAWE) has over the past five years been exploring the concept of a gender responsive school through the Centres of Excellence programme. A gender responsive school is one where the academic, social and physical environment and its surrounding community take into account the specific needs of both girls and boys. The academic delivery including teaching methodologies, teaching and learning materials, classroom interaction and management of academic processes is also gender responsive. The physical environment in the school including buildings, furniture and equipment is also gender friendly. This paper seeks to provide a synopsis of the issues covered in the Teacher's Handbook on Gender Responsive Pedagogy Handbook developed by FAWE.
