The Art of Teaching Gender and Sexuality to Elementary Students (Bay Area)
What do elementary school students already know about gender and sexuality? What is important for them to learn? In this workshop, participants will explore strategies, gain new resources, and develop classroom activities and lessons to guide elementary students in learning age appropriate concepts. We will focus on the important role language plays and how everyday teachable moments and structured discussions can help young students broaden their understanding of gender and sexuality. Together we will tackle some of the most difficult yet commonly asked questions, such as how to respectfully respond to families with diverse perspectives on this topic.
Join us for this rare chance to reflect on your experience and develop your practice, share stories, and ask burning questions. The training is designed with elementary school classroom teachers in mind, but administrators who are leading curriculum development and inclusion at their elementary school may also benefit from this professional development.
