"Toward the Inclusive Curriculum: Using Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Young Adult Literature to Teach Equity"
Even though great strides toward multiculturalism have improved equity in school curriculums, curricular materials are still heteronormative (i.e., biased toward heterosexuality), which says to students that Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) people do not deserve attention. Young adult literature has broken the curricular silence around LGBT issues. It has the capacity to serve as a mirror (affirming the experiences of LGBT students) and a window (illuminating the hitherto unfamiliar LGBT experience for heterosexual students). In this lecture, Armstrong-sponsored research around the use of LGBT young adult literature materials in effort to improve school climate will be presented.
