We've almost finished our course, and will be starting our presentations in next week's lesson!
We finished our unit on nonverbal communication for the first part of our lesson. We continued with the different types of nonverbal communication. We discussed (a) para-language: (b) silence; (c) haptics; (d) physical appearance and clothing; and (e) olfactics.
Women and Culture:
We then moved on to our last unit on the role gender plays in different cultures. We discussed the limitations of traditional gender roles and then look at how gender equality is measured in different countries. There are a variety of indexes, such as the United Nations' Gender-Related Development Index (GDI) and the Gender Empowerment Measure (GMI). Both of these indexes are combined in an annual global report called the Global Gender Gap. With this report, we looked at Japan's ranking. For your blog comment, you'll need to choose one country and explain its gender gap ranking.
In next week's lesson, we'll finished our unit on women and culture with a focus on violence towards women in different cultures.
