"Everyone Needs a Class Like This": High School Students' Perspectives on a Gay and Lesbian Literature Course
Helmer, Kirsten
Educational Forum, v79 n4 p408-420 2015
This article offers insights on how students experienced and made sense of their learning in a trimester-long high school Gay and Lesbian Literature course. Drawing on questionnaires and interviews that the students completed as part of a larger ethnographic study of this class, the author shows how a queer-themed literature curriculum is relevant for both LGBTQ-identifying and straight-identifying students and contributes to a better school climate.
