  1. Challenging homophobia and heterosexism: a K-12 curriculum resource guide

    The Toronto District School Board (TDSB) acknowledges that inequities have existed in the curriculum; therefore, the Board is committed to enabling all lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, trans-gendered, two-spirited, and queer (LGBTQ) students, and students who identify themselves on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity, to see themselves reflected in the curriculum. …

  2. Safe for all: a best practice guide to prevent homophobic bullying in secondary schools

    Bullying related to sexual orientation is now recognised as a serious issue with which schools should engage. This guide is intended for governors, school staff or other professionals who want to prevent or challenge homophobic bullying in secondary schools. Evidence increasingly suggests that attention to the physical and emotional well-being of pupils (including helping those who are bullied or who bully) can and does lead to more effective schools and raised academic attainment. …

  3. The education equality curriculum guide: supporting teachers in tackling homophobia in school

    This guide focuses predominantly on issues of sexual orientation and homophobia. These lessons are designed for use at Key Stage 3. They can be adapted and used to suit different year groups and abilities. Some lessons already provide ideas and resources for differentiation within the class. The majority of the lessons focus on sexual orientation or an investigation of homophobia; the same activities can be adapted and applied to other causes such as sectarianism/racism. There are also lessons however, which bring in LGBT issues and people as one of many other issues. …

  4. Toolkit for teachers dealing with homophobia and homophobic bullying in Scottish schools

    This toolkit has been developed as one of a number of equality projects covering a range of issues. It follows research to identify policy, practice, awareness and confidence around dealing with homophobic incidents. The research suggested that in relation to bullying and discrimination, the issue of sexual orientation is less embedded compared to other equality strands such as gender, disability and race, and teachers were less confident in dealing consistently and effectively with homophobia. …

  5. Guidelines for an LGBTQ inclusive education

    In Europe, school is where young lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer people face the most discrimination. When IGLYO, in partnership with ILGA-Europe, conducted a European study in 2006, as many as 61% of the young LGBT respondents reported negative personal experiences in schools: social exclusion, bullying, harassment, verbal and physical aggressions, and curriculum-based discrimination on the basis of their perceived gender identity and/or sexual orientation. The present Guidelines are not the ultimate guide to LGBTQ-friendly schools and universities. …

  6. Back to school guide for creating LGBT inclusive environments

    The document provides a list of steps to take to ensure that your classroom or school is a safe and inclusive space for all students, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.

  7. GALE toolkit working with schools 1.0: tools for school consultants, principals, teachers, students and parents to integrate adequate attention of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender topics in curricula and school policies

    The introduction of LGBT issues in schools is not the most obvious theme for schools. In most schools, sexuality in general and LGBT issues specifically are taboo and in many cases even forbidden. This kit aims to provide tools to help schools, school support institutions and LGBT activist organizations to deal with this subject. GALE and its partners have a great interest in working with schools. This is in the first place to make the school more accessible for all students and a better learning environment for LGBT students. …

  8. Challenging homophobia together: a guide to developing strategic partnerships in education

    This guide was developed as a result of research carried out during the lifetime of a European project funded by the European Commission, DG Justice. The 18-month project aimed to increase the confidence of EU member states to develop strategies to combat homophobia within education settings. The project was undertaken by LGBT Youth Scotland, who has experience of working in education, in partnership with Legebitra, an LGBT organisation in Slovenia. …
