A workshop for education

students, teachers, counselors & administrators

 

SERVING THE FULL

SPECTRUM:

MEETING THE NEEDS OF

LESBIAN, GAY, BISEXUAL AND

TRANSGENDERED STUDENTS

 

The goal of this workshop is to facilitate a learning environment in which all students can thrive.  This workshop explores issues facing lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) students in our public schools, and students with LGBT parents. It combines presentation, discussion, group activities, a panel of counselors, and a panel of LGBT parents and students with LGBT parents, all designed to give participants the tools to effectively support LGBT students and those with LGBT parents.  We will work on practicing skills such as how to respond when LGBT students are targets of verbal or physical bullying in schools, designing inclusive classroom activities, and working with parents.

The workshop will include presentations from PFLAG, TransActive, SMYRC, and education professors of Linfield and Pacific Universities. This workshop is open to all educational professionals, students in the field of education, and parents who care about this issue in their children's schools.

The workshop is sponsored by Pacific University’s College of Education and Pacific’s Center for Gender Equity (CGE).
