MA Early Childhood Education
Course Description

EDUC 229
Schools, Sexuality, and Gender

This course has two complementary aims: to ground students in queer theory and its usefulness for questioning normativity around gender and sexuality in education and to prepare students to be agents of change in making schools places that not only include LGBT and queer people but make the world more just for all. Topics include identity construction and intersection for teachers and students; “coming out” and “safe schools”; explicit and hidden curriculum about gender, sexuality, and family; and anti-oppressive education and student activism.
Offered every other year beginning 2020-21.
