A Vision Of Ourselves: LGBTQ Inclusive Curricula
LGBTQ students regularly report that there is little that is as important to their vision of themselves as seeing LGBTQ+ people represented in their studies. Whether in history courses, literature, as part of the biographic profile of a scientist, or the subject matter in artwork, students need to see that people like them made it into adulthood, successfully, and are part of our common history. To that end, MIB4Y is working in partnership with Garden State Equality and GLSEN Central NJ and seeking volunteers to assist in the creation of an LGBT inclusive curriculum model to be used in New Jersey schools. The first step is attending the LGBT-Inclusive Curriculum Summit slated for March 2018. We are pursuing attendees who are passionate about the addition of LGBT inclusive curriculum in the following subject area: English, History, Social Studies, World Language, Arts, Sciences, Math and Health/Sex education. We are seeking volunteers who have experience as educators in all subject areas, curriculum designers and administrators who can provide their time as a panelist and/or work on the development teams.
