Virtual Series

Stonewall National Education Project is uniquely poised through its vast national network of professionals, to help eliminate barriers, stand up for and empower our young people. The program is a ground-breaking partnership with a national network, first initiated in 2013. What started as a network of 13 school districts has grown to over 60 school districts serving LGBTQ youth. Stonewall National Education Project is an advocate for the safety, inclusion, and value of LGBTQ students, with a focus on improving student achievement, attendance, and graduation rates.

Now in its eighth year, Stonewall National Education Project positively impacts the lives of countless LGBTQ youth, and their classmates, from a spectrum of major cities and small towns across the nation.

How to Implement LGBTQ Inclusive Curriculum: New Jersey Pilot Project

Ashley E. Riker, Garden State Equality/Make It Better for Youth

This workshop will assist public school educators (5th-12th grades) in creating robust LGBTQ inclusive lessons. This workshop will provide lessons and classroom materials that are aligned with Core Curriculum Content Standards and reflect diverse instruction. Lesson planning will include template outlines, guiding questions and a pedagogical framework that will assist educators in recognizing and celebrating the significant historic, economic and social contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) individuals in the United States of America and beyond. Teachers will be able to review the LGBTQ-Inclusive lessons and work with the facilitator to align the lessons to their instructional plans. Pilot program research planning and implementation will be shared.
