This course focuses on the importance of creating and sustaining safe, equitable and inclusive learning environments that respect and celebrate the diversity of our students. Candidates will critically explore a wide range of pedagogies, resources and supports as they develop the theoretical understanding necessary to apply, implement and assess programs and/or practices related to Teaching LGBTQ Students. Strategies explored will foster a sense of partnership and collaboration with families, school/board personnel and communities. Ongoing critical examination of personal biases and privilege will constitute a significant element of this course as candidates engage in various learning experiences and reflect on new learning.
