Lesbian, Bisexual and Gay Youth Education Resources. 1995-96 Revision.
Heler, Ann, Comp.
This compilation of resource materials is prepared for teachers and support staff who either have units on homosexuality in the sexuality curricula and need some additional information or who need to have resources at hand to answer questions from students or staff. The strong opinions around issues related to homosexuality mean that school staff must be as well informed as possible. The first section of the resource guide lists 39 resource organizations for networking about homosexuality issues in the Detroit (Michigan) area. The second section, "Current Best Complete Resource," refers readers to "Gay and Lesbian Issues in Education--A Bibliography" by Tracy Phariss (1994), published by the Teachers' Group of Colorado. Additions and corrections to the Phariss bibliography are included, and a list of 13 catalogs is provided as an additional resource. The third section, "Issues for Public Schools Other than Curriculum" is a collection of eight documents related to the educational environment. Chief among these is a student "Bill of Rights" issued by the Michigan Education Association. "Classroom Suggestions," the fourth section, again recommends the Phariss bibliography and reprints the "Health Lessons on Sexual Orientation and Homosexuality" of the Birmingham (Michigan) public schools. An appendix reprints eight articles related to gay, lesbian, and bisexual students. (SLD)
