dc.description.abstractThis presentation uses a Queer Theory lens to focus on how young peoples’ identity are partly shaped by how and what they learn in school. Through a queer pedagogy, students who identify not only as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, etc. (LGBT) but also as heterosexual learn about identity formation in a broader range. Queer pedagogy is an all-inclusive way of learning, and unlearning in some cases, about one’s self and place in the world. Current school curricula rarely teach, protect, and advocate for students of all sexual identities. This presentation examines why school systems and pedagogical practices should be reworked in order to include pedagogy within the queer theoretical framework in order to encapsulate and support the entire school community.
