13 Ways to a more LGBT+ Inclusive School

13 Ways to a more LGBT+ Inclusive School

I ran our staff "Stonewall" group for a couple of years, which was a group of teachers who worked to promote LGBT+ inclusion in the school through assemblies, events, and lessons. This is a small starter activity that I made to do at the beginning of the school year, but it is also great as a mid-year refresher. Each tip begins with a letter, and all of those letters form a "Countdown Conundrum"

This is a series of PowerPoint mini-lessons that I made to be done during tutor time and each one ties in with a particular theme for that month. They go up to April as I found May onwards was devoted to exam season!

This digital journal provides links to five podcast that help explain the importance of responsible thoughts, words, actions, attitudes, and motives. They were part of a blog talk radio broadcast that aired in 2013. These podcasts were related to bullying but are relevant and related to the topics of respect and responsibility. This is a great resource for teachers who are working in schools with a religious affiliation.
