Based on the diverse experiences of LGBTQ students and their allies, this essential volume brings together in one resource the major issues that schools must address to improve the educational outcomes for gender and sexual minority students--as well as all students.

Many of these issues involve negative school-based experiences that teachers and administrators need to be aware of as they interact with students on a daily basis, including those that encourage dropping out, substance abuse, and disproportionate thoughts of suicide. This insightful work not only examines the challenges of discrimination, harassment, and alienation that LGBTQ youth face, but it also captures students' resilience and creativity in organizing against those challenges. The text includes teaching strategies, innovative projects, curricular revisions, and policy initiatives that have had positive effects on LGBTQ learning, aspirations, and school climate. Book Features: Offers a nuanced portrait of students, showing how issues of race, gender, gender identity, and class shape and complicate their experience. Examines the history and contemporary movements for LGBTQ rights. Describes a variety of discipline-based approaches to teaching students to think about LGBTQ-related concerns. Shows examples of youth organizing into extracurricular groups or creating school- and community-based interventions. Highlights the role of online communities and web-based resources.

    This book should be a must-read for every educator. The author provides countless solutions to a growing population of diverse students. It's great to have insight from a LGBTQ perspective. Each chapter the author provides vignettes that can easily be modified to any classroom. There are also many applicable strategies/implementations that can be applied immediately to one's curriculum.

    Excellent Intro Text to LGBTQ+ Studies in Education! This slim text is ideal for educators (teacher, admin, support staff, librarians) new to LGBTQ+ studies. It touches on a lot of relevant topics, i.e. biases and assumptions about LGBTQ+, zero tolerance, critical queer thinking, cyberspace (and cyberbullying), and others. If you're looking for a thorough text that is condensed into a slim, highly-accessible amount of information, this is your starter book! Highlights: It goes beyond homophobia to Excellent Intro Text to LGBTQ+ Studies in Education! This slim text is ideal for educators (teacher, admin, support staff, librarians) new to LGBTQ+ studies. It touches on a lot of relevant topics, i.e. biases and assumptions about LGBTQ+, zero tolerance, critical queer thinking, cyberspace (and cyberbullying), and others. If you're looking for a thorough text that is condensed into a slim, highly-accessible amount of information, this is your starter book! Highlights: It goes beyond homophobia to tackle transphobia, etc., It deals heavily in pedagogy and educators' POVs (thinking and behaving like an educator) It cuts to the heart of issues too-often ignored in our schools and classrooms where LGBTQ+ youth, themes, and issues are concerned. Lowlights: Because it packs so much into a small/slim volume, it is text-heavy (don't expect illustrations or graphs, etc.). It also features small, somewhat hard-to-read text if your eyes are anything like mine. Special thanks to Cris Mayo! *This book was essential to me during my PhD coursework. Happy reading, everyone!!
