Teaching LGBTQ Students
Offered: Onsite and Online
As teachers in Ontario, one of our highest priorities is creating and sustaining safe, equitable and inclusive learning environments that respect and celebrate the diversity of our students. Creating a classroom and school environment that truly honours the identity of students who identify as LGBTQ, where they feel safe and can thrive, is a purposeful endeavour, and one which has positive results for all students. Critical to this course is the modelling of a positive learning environment that reflects care, professional knowledge, ethical practice, leadership and ongoing professional learning.
Candidates will critically explore a wide range of pedagogies, resources and supports as they develop the theoretical understanding necessary to apply, implement and assess programs and/or practices related to Teaching LGBTQ Students. Strategies explored will foster a sense of partnership and collaboration with families, school/board personnel and communities. Ongoing critical examination of personal biases and privilege will constitute a significant element of this course as candidates engage in various learning experiences and reflect on new learning.
