"The Gender Communication Connection" offers an interactive approach to the course, enabling students to experience firsthand how gender communication affects their lives daily. Strong end-of-chapter pedagogy includes special sections which strengthen students' critical-thinking skills by prompting them to discuss, reflect upon, write about, or explore online a variety of gender topics and issues."Literary Insight" asks students to read and consider excerpts from plays, poems, essays, and novels that highlight gender issues. Follow-up questions encourage students to reflect and broaden their understanding. "A Researcher' s View" profiles a research study abstract or research question that has been pursued, and then invites students to investigate and/or replicate the study on a personal scale.
