Project description

The study is a mixed methods investigation of gender in the Ugandan classroom through curriculum materials and pedagogy. The focus is on gender representation in four popular English textbooks recommended by the Ministery of Education for teaching English to senior three students in Ugandan schools. I will also establish how teachers mediate these texts and the factors that influence this mediation.
