In this activity based on an authentic television news excerpt, students in high intermediate and advanced courses will build vocabulary, answer multiple choice questions, and discuss issues of gender equality in the workplace. The discussion questions and teacher's guide provide ample opportunity to compare and contrast situations in France and in the US. Among other things, the teacher's guide features extensive information about labor statistics in the US and legislation regarding workplace equality in both France and the US. As such, this activity could lead to a presentational speaking assignment. The teacher's guide also includes the link to the unlisted YouTube video (not publicly available.) Please note that the teacher's guide is in French. For schools where YouTube is not accessible, I can email an electronic copy of the recording upon request.
