This workshop will assist public school educators (5th-12th grades) in creating robust LGBTQ inclusive lessons. This workshop will provide lessons and classroom materials that are aligned with Core Curriculum Content Standards and reflect diverse instruction. Lesson planning will include template outlines, guiding questions and a pedagogical framework that will assist educators in recognizing and celebrating the significant historic, economic and social contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) individuals in the United States of America and beyond. Teachers will be able to review the LGBTQ-Inclusive lessons and work with the facilitator to align the lessons to their instructional plans. Pilot program research planning and implementation will be shared.
