The Classroom aims to be an accessible space for teachers to locate a range of resources to make Lesbian Gay Bisexual Trans people visible in education. We believe that to eradicate homophobia and transphobia, the lives and contributions of LGBT people need to be visible throughout education. This can be done by delivering a broad and balanced curriculum.

We passionately believe in diversity being celebrated in all its forms. Therefore, we present a simple but effective methodology to enable you to be an inclusive practitioner and promoter of equality and diversity.

 

 

The Classroom aims to:

  1. Provide new and user-friendly ways of challenging homophobia/transphobia across curriculum.
  2. Link to a wide range of resources, lessons, tool kits and guidance that offer alternate solutions.
  3. Provide subject specific resources, to enable the teaching and learning.
  4. Detail a user-friendly methodolgy that underpins our work.

Our teaching methods of ‘usualising’ and ‘actualising’ enable any subject teacher the opportunity to do this. We do not advocate the inclusion of LGBT content where it appears forced, at odds with the lesson narrative, or incompatible with the learning objectives. Our methods have been designed with this in mind.

This is truly a unique and exciting project which aims to provide a professionally accredited approach to equalities work in education. You are being invited to contribute to this ground breaking work.
