Teaching Transgressive Representations of LGBTQ People in Educator Preparation: Is Conformity Required for Inclusion?
Educational Forum, v79 n4 p451-458 2015
One strategy used to teach about diverse populations is to edit their curricular representations to minimize their transgressive nature in an effort to gain more acceptance among students. This article explores the implications of these assimilationist narratives when used in educator preparation programs to represent LGBTQ people. It examines the potential advantages of teaching more diverse and transgressive representations in the interest of inclusion and educator preparation.
