I am currently teaching a course on college student development theory, and on 4/5/18 we will be discussing gender and gender identity, and on 4/12/18 we will be discussing sexual identity.

This presentation is for the WMST 100 class (Representations of Women) under Women and Gender Studies and is a classroom of mostly underclass students however, a few upperclass students who are taking it as an elective. My class has 40 students. Overall, the course gives students an overview of the constructs of gender, sex, sexuality and identify from an intersectional lens. Around the times requested, we will be reading Under the Udala Tree which is a young adult fiction book by Chinelo Okparanta about a young Nigerian woman who falls in love with a Nigerian woman from another tribe in a war torn christian dominated society.

My thought in bringing LGBTQ Resources into the conversation is to expose students to a new resource if they don’t already know about it and to provide an additionally perspective that cements the reading we will be doing. My class is an 1 and 15 minutes long and I am happy to give the entire class time if that is helpful, but I also want to respect capacity.

Below I selected the Gender Intro, Coming Out Star Activity and the Stigmas Activity, but I am flexible in terms of what you think might work best!

(I selected several dates. However, some of them are coming up quickly and therefore I can be flexible to another date if that works better for you all. Also, if you don’t have capacity to do a presentation at this time, that is okay too!)

I teach EDUC 301 which is about diversity in schools. Every semester you send a representative to my class to cover the topic of LGBTQ. The class would be from 4:30 -7 ish-of to finish a little early. I assume that I want Intro to LGBTQ, something about Gender and the star activity. I hope you can come as I am a strong supporter of the LGBTQ community, but feel inadequate to do this lesson. I, so very much, appreciate your instruction to students who might not get it in any other way. Your office has always be helpful and all the presentations were terrific.

The class EDUC 301 001-Educationally Diverse Populations: Handicapped, Gifted, Multicultural examines issues of social justice, inequity and inclusion in K-12 spaces. The topic of introducing gender and sexuality in schools to not only be supportive to students but ensure inclusive anti-bias spaces for all students to thrive. I am seeking a presentation that will introduce concepts of gender, sexuality and identity so that future teachers can begin to examine their bias and actively affirm students.

I am an RA on Essex 1st and would like to educate my residents on the issues facing the LGBTQA+ community because we have members of them on the floor. I believe having a workshop would help create a better environment for all on the floor, but specifically, those who do not identify with heterosexual on the floor.

I am an RA on Essex First and have students that are interested in exploring sexuality and understanding how it is important. I specifically have one student who openly identifies and non-heterosexual but is on crutches and thus cannot physically come to these workshops and I think she could benefit from the office coming to talk.

These students are part of the Leadership and Community Engagement LLC and through the class we talk about a variety of social issues, we examine community engagement and use of lens of social justice. Being able to incorporate some more education for these students will be powerful. We do have a high number of students who identify as LGBTQ but i’d also love for the others to have a better sense of what that means.
