Lesson Description

In this ESL lesson plan for adults and teens, students watch a report about why women tend to be paid less than men. It includes discussion questions and other speaking activities about gender equality and women's rights. Students also learn some important vocabulary terms and phrases from the video. The post-viewing sections include activities on vocabulary context usage, phrases from the video, parts of speech, and the third conditional. There are additional speaking tasks included, as well as a quiz and review section with a bonus activity.

Video Description

The gender pay gap is not caused by women earning less than men for the same job. It is largely because women choose different careers and suffer a “motherhood penalty”’.
