Modern Families: Incorporating LGBTQ+ families in the classroom community

This full day, eight hour workshop helps teachers and admin support LGBTQ+ folks in their school communities. This can help teachers with LGBTQ+ children, and understanding queer family needs or their value to the classroom. Participants will leave with resources for ensuring more queer representation in the classroom (books, pictures, works); tangible ways in which to support queer families (sample documents, non-gendered language); and deeper understanding of queer issues and concerns (current terminology, notable history, and current concerns). Due to the erratic nature of Covid-19, the workshop can be broken down into sessions virtually as well.

Parents may want to help guide them but not know how. This interactive lecture helps with that.

The best practices for supporting gender and sexual minority groups will be presented and discussed as a group.

A discussion on what minority stress looks like in a school district for both students and faculty, and how bias can unknowingly add to systemic oppressive practices.
