All students deserve to feel safe and supported in school, however schools can be unwelcoming places for LGBTQ students. A strategy for building safer learning environments includes utilizing a curriculum inclusive of positive representations, themes and histories of the LGBTQ community. Workshop participants will explore the various lesson plan resource offerings from The Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network, and make a plan for implementation in their own classrooms.
