Classroom Currents: Interrupting the Single Story: LGBT Issues in the Language Arts Classroom
Hermann-Wilmarth, Jill; Ryan, Caitlin L.
Language Arts, v90 n3 p226-231 Jan 2013
Two literacy leaders acknowledge the challenges of teaching LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) issues in the classroom. While children come from a variety of family structures, it is necessary to acknowledge that a gay individual was once a child sitting in a classroom. An argument against marginalization and an advocacy for inclusion of all learners is discussed.
