Do you want to be a more inclusive educator? Do you want to ensure all your students feel accepted and empowered in your classroom?

Whether we know it or not, gender and sexual diversity exist in all classrooms. The course Teaching LGBTQ2S+ Students will help you understand the experiences of diverse gender identities and sexual orientations, encourage you to challenge your own biases, and provide you with tools to foster a truly inclusive environment for your LGBTQ2S+ students.

In this course you’ll complete practical tasks to broaden your perspective on teaching LGBTQ2S+ students. You’ll engage in guided discussions with your colleagues, explore a range of rich resources, learn about gender identities and sexual orientations, and begin your journey toward creating an inclusive, safe and engaging classroom and school community. You will practice implementing these strategies throughout the course as you build your ePortfolio and learn to become a vital ally to all LGBTQ2S+ students.
