Through this course, educators become advocates for LGBTQ+ inclusivity, promoting social justice and empowering all students to thrive in a diverse society.

Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of LGBTQ+ identities, terminology, and issues
  • Implement inclusive curriculum and instructional strategies
  • Foster a safe and affirming classroom environment
  • Support LGBTQ+ students’ social-emotional well-being

  • “Great information and resources. Thank you for all of your work on this class! This is invaluable and very important for all teachers and communities.”

  • “The content and topics offered in this class is something all teachers should be learning. Many of us are uncomfortable with these topics, and regardless of our own beliefs/values, etc. we need to work to be open minded in order to meet the needs of the diversity our students hold.
    As teachers we need to make sure our classrooms and learning environments are inclusive for all the things.”

  • “It truly deepened my knowledge of the LGBTQ+ community, had a variety of activities, encouraged engagement, and made me reflect on my own practice.”

  • “Honestly, I loved everything. I’ve taken a lot of Happy Teacher courses (15 now) and this class is absolutely one of the top 3 best. The resources, information, and activities were amazing and truly helped me think about some of my teaching practices and
    how I can improve them in future to be even more inclusive. It also forced me (in a good way) to see what resources were out there for Spanish / foreign language teachers regarding LGBTQ+ lessons in the classroom. I am incredibly happy that I took this class. THANK YOU!”
