Summary
  • It is proposed that in an effort to promote awareness, positive self-concept, and healthy attitudes, and to reduce stereotyping, sexual identity issues should be incorporated into English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) teaching. Open discussion of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transsexual issues may help to reduce the isolation of lesbians and gays, demystify their situation, and change the attitudes of others toward them, and not coincidentally, reduce the suicide rate among this significant minority. A thematic approach is recommended alongside the communicative approach to language teaching. Activities that could be incorporated into this framework are described, including conversational activities (word association, discussion of students' points of view, role-playing, discussion of radio and television programs on the topic, and conversations with gays and lesbians), relevant readings (list included) as a basis for class activities (conversation, vocabulary development, writing, grammar review) and reading practice, films on homosexuality and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, and writing exercises. Contains 16 references. (MSE)
