The Faggot in the Woodpile: Teaching Gay Students.
Crew, Louie
Gay students need and deserve to have teachers (gay or nongay) who will both show them creative, nonneurotic ways of channeling their talents and energies and join in the battle against the ignorance that makes gay people such ready prey to nongay predators. As may be seen from three papers written in a teachers' workshop class on the topic "When I Discover That My Child is Gay," there is much that teachers can learn from students and much that they must learn about the adult dimensions possible for their students if these students are to be educated. For the English teacher, literature offers many opportunities for seriously acknowledging the gay parameters in the world. (JM)
