Este estudio exploró los efectos de la implementación del modelo de literacidad crítica de Janks con estudiantes de Inglés como Lengua Extranjera de una universidad colombiana. Siguiendo este modelo, se diseñó e implementó una unidad didáctica para desarrollar la literacidad crítica de los estudiantes mediante la reflexión sobre estereotipos de género, el análisis de comerciales de televisión que estereotipan a las mujeres y la redacción de ensayos sobre dichos estereotipos. Los datos incluyeron trabajos de los estudiantes, audio grabaciones de clases y entrevistas. Los hallazgos mostraron que los estudiantes comprendieron cómo los comerciales televisivos promueven estereotipos contra la mujer. También se familiarizaron con el género del ensayo expositivo mediante el cual tomaron su propia postura frente a tales estereotipos. Además, los estudiantes aprovecharon sus diversas creencias y experiencias para abordar tales temas. Finalmente, los estudiantes pudieron producir ensayos que desafían los estereotipos de género, utilizando una amplia variedad de recursos lingüísticos.
