Course Description

OCT Schedule C Course

Teaching LGBTQ course candidates will be on an educational journey through the complex struggles of gender and sexual/sexuality minorities (GSM) students. Educators will learn about queer history and queer theory, queer culture, critical pedagogy, and, most importantly, the challenge to meet our lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, non-binary, intersexual, queer, questioning, ally, pansexual and two-spirited youth in a safer, inclusive, evolving, and celebratory space. Candidates will collaborate, conduct inquiries, reflect, and shift their mindset through an equity and inclusive stance. Reflecting back and looking forward, candidates will open up the present to make their classroom, a space for all students.


Course Outline

In this course, you will have the opportunity to:
• explore theoretical and practical teaching and learning pedagogy
• current assessment and evaluation methods.
• develop and implement classroom instructional strategies that include LGBTTIQQ2S students and identities



There is no textbook required for the course. Most of the readings will be provided through links within the course. Some of the readings and videos will be accessed through the Internet and others are online journals.
