Homophobic Hallways: Is Anyone Listening?
Crocco, Margaret Smith
Theory and Research in Social Education, v30 n2 p217-232 Spr 2002
Findings are presented from research in a teacher education course on diversity and the social studies that takes gender and sexuality as subject matter. Five themes emerge from five years of qualitative data related to teaching the course and following the experiences of graduates attempting to apply their learning to new teaching situations. The author offers ideas for infusing discussion of sexuality and homophobia into social studies teaching and teacher education as well as professional development workshops in schools.
