I’m going to provide you with a resource for the grade 11 genders course [HSG3M] because I know that some of you are still asking for resources for the newer courses.  Please see the following web sites to give you material to help you teach the course:

http://teachingfmg.weebly.com/unitlesson-plans.html  (Has a variety of lessons which cover plenty of expections in the course regarding, power, society; CBC section on defining feminism.)

https://beta.thestar.com/news/canada/2009/12/05/lessons_of_the_montreal_massacre_why_women_must_fight_to_be_what_they_want.html  An article that could lead into discussion about violence against women and to come up with strategies to learn from and move forward from it.

https://feministteacher.com/2014/06/09/feminist-high-school-boys-declare-i-am-a-feminist/  This article provides a very different perspective and it can bring the boys into the discussion about feminism and how they are a part of the solution. 

Also please find attached a short lesson plan which covers course expectations in the sections titled ” social constructs in gender”; “power, relations in sex and gender”, and “representations of gender” [e.g., B1.1, B1.2, B3.1, C1.3].
