Representation Matters: The School Librarian and LGBTQ Curriculum Inclusion


Feb 18, 2015 12:00am


Credits: None available.

Members: $0.00
Standard: $6.99

Description

Although the safety and inclusion of LGBTQ students has become a widely discussed topic across the U.S., little has been written about the role of school librarians in supporting LGBTQ students beyond gay and lesbian book lists. As educators, curriculum leaders, and information specialists, school librarians are in a unique position to advocate for LGBTQ students through supporting LGBTQ curriculum inclusion. The webinar introduces the rationale for LGBTQ inclusive education and legal rights and protections. Participants will also learn strategies for curriculum inclusion, including defining and overcoming barriers, providing access to information, uncovering LGBTQ topics in the subject areas, and classroom best practices.

  • Participants will be able to explain the rationale and role of LGBTQ inclusive curriculum.
  • Participants will be able to define best practices for LGBTQ inclusion.
  • Participants will be able to identify next steps for inclusion in their own practices.
