Beginning in Fall 2020, state law requires New Jersey schools to include the “political, economic, and social contributions of persons with disabilities and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people” in middle school and high school curricula. Through discussion and hands-on activities, we’ll explore gender and sexuality as socially constructed categories that shape history, science, literature, and tools for measuring social change over time. Teachers in all fields will develop practical applications to build cultural competency, strengthen students’ critical thinking skills, and enhance school and classroom climate.
This workshop is presented by Betsy Erbaugh, a sociologist with research and teaching specialties in intersections of gender, sexuality, race, and class in health promotion and social change. She conducts community-based research on women’s and LGBTQ+ health in New Jersey. In partnership withlocal LGBTQ+ organizations, sheis studying the impact of LGBTQ-inclusive curricula on school climate and student well-being.
The LGBTQ Inclusive Pedagogy workshop for K-12 Educators is presented by Stockton University's Why the Humanities Matter Institute for Teachers.
