Texts, Structure, and Collaboration: Reflections of a Professional Development Addressing Homophobia in Secondary Schools
Jones, Joseph R.
Homophobia is an incredible problem within educational settings. Therefore, we must begin examining how we can address the challenge in an effective manner. Researchers postulate professional development (PD) discussing homophobia is an appropriate method to address the problem. To date, there is little published literature that discusses how a PD exploring homophobia should be structured. Therefore, this article attempts to provide some insights for possible PD constructions.
