Curriculum

 

Guide

 

(Aug-Dec)

This curriculum provides a framework to help guide your work as you move through the year. 

 

We present the first three themes in this guide.

 

August/September: Identity Work and Pronoun Exploration

October/November: Thinking Critically and Unpacking Stereotypes

December: Beyond the Binary

 

Each monthly guide provides a student goal, student-friendly definitions, book recommendations by topic, lesson plan ideas, tips for communicating with families, and additional reading for teachers.
