Teaching LGBTQ students will be a journey through lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, transgender, intersexual, queer, questioning and two-spirited (LGBTQQITT2S) history and theory, queer culture, critical pedagogy, and, most importantly, a challenge to meet our LGBTTIQQ2S students in a safe, inclusive, evolving, and celebratory space. Candidates will collaborate, conduct inquiries, reflect, and shift their mindset through an equity stance. Reflecting back and looking forward, candidates will open up the present to make their classroom a space for all students.

Course Learning Expectations

In this course, you will have the opportunity to:

• explore theoretical and practical teaching and learning pedagogy
• develop and implement classroom instructional strategies that include LGBTTIQQ2S students and identities
• collaborate with other candidates to identify intersecting biases and challenge assumptions about LGBTTIQQ2S subjectivities
