How to Queer Your Curriculum ... Because the "Why" Takes Too Long

DPL 2019 Workshops Oct 01, 2020

In this workshop, we will explore practical ways to make your curriculum more reflective of LGBTQ+ communities. We will spend time, in groups, deconstructing hetero-normative materials and brainstorming alternatives that change this narrative. Once we gather our ideas, we will use the remaining time to create a list of activities and resources that can be used in the classroom Monday morning. This workshop is not meant to discuss the inherent value of incorporating LGBTQ+ voices in one’s curriculum, but makes the assumption that the value is understood and offers ways to build on that foundation.
