Teaching gender issues in Asian American psychology: A pedagogical framework

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article presents a set of pedagogical approaches and suggested topics and materials for teaching gender issues in Asian American psychology. The experiences of contemporary Asian American women and men must be understood with an appreciation for the larger social, political, and historical contexts in which they live. Thus, several topics designed to "set the stage" for exploration of gender issues are presented. Central issues in teaching gender-related topics within Asian American psychology are discussed under the categories of gender roles, gender stereotypes, and gender differences. Instructors are encouraged to use multimedia resources and interdisciplinary approaches to promote critical thinking about the complex interactions of ethnicity, gender, and the larger sociocultural forces that shape Asian American women and men's psychological experiences.
