School’s Out “Classroom”

21/06/2011

School’s Out has launched their online resources for teachers and schools that bring LGBT issues into the curriculum at all stages of the national curriculum. “Classroom” includes LGBT themes lesson plans in subjects such as Science, Mathemathics, Art, English and History. Originally funded by the Training and Development Agency for Schools (TDA) under the previous Labour Government, this set of resources allows teachers to download lessons plans, try them out and provide feedback to the developers and colleagues online. Through this open dialogue with teachers, School’s Out hopes that “Classroom” will take the fear out of teaching LGBT issues and also challenge some of the taboos about discussing LGBT issues through subject specific exercises that have an LGBT theme.

“Classroom” can be accessed directly here, or at the following URL:
