The Gay Teen: Educational Practice and Theory for Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Adolescents
Psychology Press, 1995 - Education - 250 pages
Written by and for gay and straight educators, The Gay Teen explores gay student adolescence from discursive, practical and theoretical perspectives. The volume introduces and sensitizes educators to the complexities of gay identity and sets forth some of the isses facing gay youth in high schools. Contributors survey "gay-friendly" curricula in a number of subject areas, including literature, sex education, sports and social studies. Vital teaching strategies, intervention techniques and staff training recommendations form an integral part of the analyses and are designed to help teachers and counsellors better address the academic and psychological needs of gay students and redress homophobia in the school setting. The Gay Teen also showcases the pioneering safe spaces that educators have created for students--gay as well as straight--who are struggling to forge sexual identities during the tough years of adolescence.
