Come out this Wednesday, January 25th to learn more about NYQueer’s Beyond Tolerance Guide and share ideas with other educators!
Teachers and educators often face challenges when considering how to help students think critically about issues of gender and sexuality. It is often hard to know where to begin, which is one of the reasons Beyond Tolerance: A Resource Guide for Addressing LGTBQI Issues in Schools was created. The Beyond Tolerance Guide is a compilation of resources that can be used to plan whole units, class lessons, club activities, used to provide individual support, or used as a general reference. Check out the first version of the guide in advance here!: http://www.nycore.org/
Join NYQueer on Wed Jan 25, 4:30-6:30 at the Bronx Academy of Letters for a workshop where we’ll explore a newly revised version of the guide and discuss which tools and resources are most relevant for us and the young people we work with. New to the guide? Old pro? All are welcome!
