Sexuality Matters: Paradigms and Policies for Educational Leaders
                    October 15th, 2009
                    ISBN 1607094185 (ISBN13: 9781607094180)

                    Sexuality Matters brings together scholars from a variety of epistemological perspectives to explore the multiple ways in                     which sexuality does indeed matter in the arena of public education. This book is arranged into three main thematic                     areas: Policy and Activism, Curriculum and Pedagogy, and Identity and Lived Experiences, each of which explores                     specific ideas and challenges found within the corresponding topic. The special features of this collection include a focus                     on the implications of sexuality for educational leadership as well as a multi-perspectival approach to the exploration of                     these concerns. This text will prove to be especially useful both to scholars who prepare future educational leaders and                     to practitioners who are seeking ways to deal with the complex social realities of their communities.

Gay on God's Campus: Mobilizing for LGBT Equality at Christian Colleges and Universities
                    February 2nd, 2018
                    ISBN 1469636212 (ISBN13: 9781469636214)

                    Although the LGBT movement has made rapid gains in the United States, LGBT people continue to face discrimination                     in faith communities. In this book, sociologist Jonathan S. Coley documents why and how student activists mobilize for                     greater inclusion at Christian colleges and universities. Drawing on interviews with student activists at a range of                     Christian institutions of higher learning, Coley shows that students, initially drawn to activism because of their own                     political, religious, or LGBT identities, are forming direct action groups that transform university policies, educational                     groups that open up campus dialogue, and solidarity groups that facilitate their members' personal growth.

                    April 27th, 2018
                    ASIN B07D1F31Y2

                    Drawing on examples of teaching from elementary school classrooms, this timely book for practitioners explains why                     LGBTQ-inclusive literacy instruction is possible, relevant, and necessary in grades K–5. The authors show how                     expanding the English language arts curriculum to include representations of LGBTQ people and themes will benefit all                     students, allowing them to participate in a truly inclusive classroom. The text describes three different approaches that                     address the limitations, pressures, and possibilities that teachers in various contexts face around these topics. The                     authors make clear what LGBTQ-inclusive literacy teaching can look like in practice, including what teachers might say                     and how students might respond.

                    As any teacher or parent knows, adolescence is a time when youth grapple with the question, "Who am I?" The answers                     don't always come easily. Issues of race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexual orientation, and ability often complicate this                     question for youth, affecting their schoolwork and their relationships with teachers, administrators, and peers.                                       Adolescents at School gives educators, administrators, community leaders, counselors, social workers, health-care                     professionals, and parents a glimpse into the complex "identities" adolescents negotiate as they manage the challenges                     of school. The book contains the perspectives of teachers, researchers, and administrators and adolescents themselves                     who explore what it means to be a middle or high school student in the United States today.

School Climate Change: How do I build a positive environment for learning?
                    September 8th, 2014
                    ASIN B00O0ZX83W

                    Students and educators today face obstacles to student achievement, well-being, and success that are above and                     beyond traditional instructional and assessment concerns. From low school morale to bullying to shootings, school                     climate has become a national and global concern. Research overwhelmingly indicates that a positive school climate                     promotes cooperative learning, group cohesion, respect, and mutual trust—all of which have in turn been shown to                     improve the learning environment. In short, a positive school climate is directly related to improved academic                                       achievement at all levels of schooling.

How to Transform Your School into an LGBT+ Friendly Place: A Practical Guide for Nursery, Primary and Secondary Teachers
                    March 3rd, 2018
                    ISBN 1785923498 (ISBN13: 9781785923494)

                    Currently teachers don't receive the training or induction they need to make their school an LGBT+ inclusive                                         environment. This can be seen by the fact that half of schools do not teach anything regarding LGBT+, and only 3%                     include LGBT+ content in two or more subjects. This book will help transform your school into a safe and inclusive place                     for all students. Written with Educate Celebrate!, an Ofsted and DFE recognized 'Best Practice Award Program, this                     book gives teachers, governors and other staff the knowledge, strategies and confidence they need to implement a                     curriculum that is inclusive for all. 

Dude, You're a Fag: Masculinity and Sexuality in High School
                    June 4th, 2007
                    ISBN 0520252306 (ISBN13: 9780520252301)

                    High school and the difficult terrain of sexuality and gender identity are brilliantly explored in this smart, incisive                     ethnography. Based on eighteen months of fieldwork in a racially diverse working-class high school, Dude, You're a Fag                     sheds new light on masculinity both as a field of meaning and as a set of social practices. C. J. Pascoe's unorthodox                     approach analyzes masculinity as not only a gendered process but also a sexual one. She demonstrates how the                     "specter of the fag" becomes a disciplinary mechanism for regulating heterosexual as well as homosexual boys and how                     the "fag discourse" is as much tied to gender as it is to sexuality.

The Gay Teen: Educational Practice and Theory for Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual Adolescents
                    April 5th, 1995
                    ISBN 0415910951 (ISBN13: 9780415910958)

                    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 issues 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.

Brotherhood: Gay Life in College Fraternities
                    October 1st, 2005
                    ISBN 1555838561 (ISBN13: 9781555838560)

                    Since the 1998 publication of his groundbreaking book "Out on Fraternity Row," editor and Lambda 10 Project founder                     Shane Windmeyer has witnessed many changes in the reception and treatment of gay fraternity members: "We have                     made tremendous progress on men coming out to their brothers and being more likely to find acceptance due to the                             credo 'once a brother, always a brother, ' but the new challenge and logical next boundary to break down for the                     fraternity closet is rushing openly gay." His new book, "Brotherhood," is a bold step in that direction. Windmeyer reveals                     a 10-year perspective of progress on gay issues within college fraternities and suggests a 10-year plan to continue                     educational efforts for further systemic implementation to combat homophobia in fraternities.

Sexual Orientation and School Policy: A Practical Guide for Teachers, Administrators, and Community Activists
                    December 1st, 2003
                    ISBN 0742525082 (ISBN13: 9780742525085)

                    This book helps the reader to understand and mediate the debates that arise when gay, lesbian, bisexual,                                         transgendered, intersex, and queer/questioning (GLBTIQ) students and their families ask for equal treatment from the                     schools and are opposed by conservative parents. Sexual Orientation and School Policy is a case study of one school                     districts' attempt to adopt and implement policies that include sexual orientation. This book describes the work of the                     Safe Schools Coalition who advocate and educate for equal rights for GLBTIQ students. Concerned Citizens, a group of                     conservative parents, opposed the inclusion of sexual orientation in the policies. The author highlights the factors that                     either facilitated or impeded the implementation of the policies as well as the strategies employed by the Safe Schools                     Coalition in educating opponents.

Mama's Boy, Preacher's Son: A Memoir of Growing Up, Coming Out, and Changing America's Schools
                    May 15th, 2007
                    ISBN 0807071471 (ISBN13: 9780807071472)

                    Long before Kevin Jennings began advocating to end anti-LGBT bias in schools, he was a victim of it. In Mama's Boy,                     Preacher's Son, Jennings traces the roots of his activism to his elementary school days in the conservative South, where                     "faggot" became more familiar to him than his own name. Mama's Boy, Preacher's Son is that rare memoir that is both a                     riveting personal story and an inside account of a critical chapter in our recent history. Creating safe schools for all youth                     is now a central part of the progressive agenda in American education—and Kevin Jennings is at the forefront of that                     fight. Mama's Boy, Preacher's Son earned an A- in Entertainment Weekly, was featured in Salon and The Advocate, and                     was called "a great read" by People.

Unnormalizing Education: Addressing Homophobia in Higher Education and K-12 Schools
                    June 1st, 2014
                    ISBN 1623967082 (ISBN13: 9781623967086)

                    Recently, with the number of students from higher education and K-12 settings committing suicide, it is apparent that                     homophobia and homophobic bullying are tremendous problems in our schools and universities. However, educators are                     unclear about an appropriate process for addressing these challenges. In this book, Jones postulates that we must begin                     exploring the culture of educational environments as they relate to sexual difference, in order to begin conceptualizing                     ways in which we may begin to address homophobia and heteronormativity. To that end, this book addresses how                     educators (at all levels) must begin examining how their concepts about different sexual identities are "normalized"                     through socializing processes and schooling. 

The Bully, the Bullied, and the Bystander
                    January 1st, 2002
                    ISBN 006001430X (ISBN13: 9780060014308)

                    It's the deadliest combination going; bullies who terrorize, bullied kids who are afraid to tell, bystanders who watch, and                     adults who see the incidents as a normal part of childhood. All it takes to understand that this is a recipe for tragedy is a                     glance at headlines across the country. In this updated edition of The Bully, the Bullied, and the Bystander, which                     includes a new section on cyberbullying, one of the world's most trusted parenting educators gives parents, caregivers,                     educators - and most of all, kids - the tools to break the cycle of violence.

Getting Ready for Benjamin: Preparing Teachers for Sexual Diversity in the Classroom
                    October 23rd, 2002
                    ISBN 0742516776 (ISBN13: 9780742516779)

                    This book argues that issues of sexual diversity are inextricably interwoven into the basic concerns of pre-service                     teacher education. How do we make our students aware of assumptions regarding masculinity, femininity, and sexuality                     that arise from what is presented, represented, or omitted from curricula and classroom practice? What do we say about                     homophobia and heterosexism as we anticipate the administrative hierarchies, school cultures, parent and community                     politics they will encounter as teachers? What special challenges might face a teacher (straight or gay) who discusses                     sexual orientation in a high school classroom, or responds to a homophobic remark in the hallway or the cafeteria? How                     should we prepare a teacher for a parent conference with two moms or two dads? 

Telling Tales Out of School: Gays, Lesbians, and Bisexuals Revisit Their School Days
                    August 1st, 1998
                    ISBN 1555834183 (ISBN13: 9781555834180)

                    In this collection of over thirty essays, gays, lesbians, and bisexuals look back at their school days -- some with wry                     humor, others with acknowledged pain. Most find that they are still trying to unlearn a basic lesson imparted by the                     educational system to homosexuals: Hate yourself. The personal memoirs collected here are sharp and varied, detailing                     everything from valiant struggles during the pre-Stonewall days to the isolation of sissies and tomboys, the violence and                     harassment that became numbingly common on playgrounds, and the love stories that made young students hopeful                     that there was a better life outside of school.

Don't Be So Gay! Queers, Bullying, and Making Schools Safe
                    March 1st, 2013
                    ISBN 0774823275 (ISBN13: 9780774823272)

                    Recent cases of teen suicide linked with homophobic bullying have thrust the issue of school safety into the national                     spotlight. In "Don't Be So Gay!" Queers, Bullying, and Making Schools Safe, Donn Short considers the effectiveness of                     safe-school legislation. Drawing on interviews with queer youth and their allies in the Toronto area, Short concludes that                     current legislation is more responsive than proactive.

School's Out: Gay and Lesbian Teachers in the Classroom
                    November 24th, 2014
                    ISBN 0520959809 (ISBN13: 9780520959804)

                    How do gay and lesbian teachers negotiate their professional and sexual identities at work, given that these identities                     are constructed as mutually exclusive, even as mutually opposed? Using interviews and other ethnographic materials                     from Texas and California, School's Out explores how teachers struggle to create a classroom persona that balances                     who they are and what's expected of them in a climate of pervasive homophobia. Catherine Connell's examination of the                     tension between the rhetoric of gay pride and the professional ethic of discretion insightfully connects and considers                     complicating factors, from local law and politics to gender privilege. She also describes how racialized discourses of                     homophobia thwart challenges to sexual injustices in schools. Written with ethnographic verve, School's Out is essential                     reading for specialists and students of queer studies, gender studies, and educational politics.

Queer and Trans Perspectives on Teaching LGBT-Themed Texts in Schools
                    December 15th, 2017
                    ISBN 1138565032 (ISBN13: 9781138565036)

                    The contributions in this book offer explicit implications for pedagogical practice, considering literature for children and                     young adults, and work in elementary school, high school, and university classrooms and schools. They give insights on                     exploring how queer and trans theories might inform the teaching and learning of English language arts with great                     respect to people who live their lives beyond hegemonic heternormativity and cisnormativity. They provide wisdom on                     how to provoke, foster, and navigate complicated conversations about sexuality, queer desire, gender creativity, gender                     independence, and trans inclusivity. In addition, they show how all of these are informed by an epistemological and                     ontological understanding of gender embodiment as a process of becoming. They offer insights into how queer and trans                     theories, as informed and driven by trans, non-binary and gender diverse scholars themselves, can move all of us                     beyond LGBTQ-inclusivity and inform reading, discussing, teaching, and learning in all of the classrooms and school                     contexts where we live and work.

One Teacher in Ten in the New Millennium: LGBT Educators Speak Out About What's Gotten Better . . . and What Hasn't
                    August 25th, 2015
                    ISBN 0807055867 (ISBN13: 9780807055861)
                    For more than twenty years, the One Teacher in Ten series has served as an invaluable source of strength and                     inspiration for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender educators. This all-new edition brings together stories from across                     America—and around the world—resulting in a rich tapestry of varied experiences. From a teacher who feels he must                     remain closeted in the comparative safety of New York City public schools to teachers who are out in places as far afield                     as South Africa and China, the teachers and school administrators in One Teacher in Ten in the New Millennium prove                     that LGBT educators are as diverse and complex as humanity itself. 

The Last Closet: The Real Lives of Lesbian and Gay Teachers
                    June 17th, 1996
                    ISBN 0435081470 (ISBN13: 9780435081478)

                    The Last Closet tells the stories of lesbian and gay educators as they struggle for dignity in the face of homophobia.                     These stories come from over a hundred lesbian, gay, and bisexual women and men who are, or have been, teachers,                     counselors, librarians, and administrators across the country. Rita Kissen, who began her research after her lesbian                     daughter became a teacher, uses both narration and description to capture the texture and tone of these teachers' daily                     lives. The Last Closet describes the struggles of educators caught between their desire for authenticity and their need for                     safety - a need that forces most of them to hide a significant part of their identity. Kissen also suggests survival strategies                     for lesbian and gay educators and offers advice for heterosexual parents, teachers, and administrators who want to                     make their schools and communities inclusive and safe for all.

                    ISBN 0816674582 (ISBN13: 9780816674589)

                    Despite significant advances for gay and transgender persons in the United States, the public school environment                     remains daunting, even frightening, as evidenced by numerous high-profile incidents of discrimination, bullying, violence,                     and suicide. Yet efforts to protect the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) students and educators, or                     to enhance curricula to better reflect the experience of differing sexual orientations and gender identities, are bitterly                     opposed in the courtroom, at the ballot box, and especially in the schools themselves.

                    This landmark book empowers educators to become visible, positive influences and role models for gay and lesbian                     students in their classrooms and schools.

It promotes the development of school-based intervention for gay,                     lesbian, and bisexual students.

Harvard's Secret Court: The Savage 1920 Purge of Campus Homosexuals
                    October 31st, 2006
                    ISBN 0312322720 (ISBN13: 9780312322724)

                    In 2002, a researcher for The Harvard Crimson came across a restricted archive labeled "Secret Court Files, 1920." The                     mystery he uncovered involved a tragic scandal in which Harvard University secretly put a dozen students on trial for                     homosexuality and then systematically and persistently tried to ruin their lives. In May of 1920, Cyril Wilcox, a freshman                     suspended from Harvard, was found sprawled dead on his bed, his room filled with gas--a suicide. The note he left                     behind revealed his secret life as part of a circle of (cut "young") homosexual students. The resulting witch hunt and the                     lives it cost remains one of the most shameful episodes in the history of America's premiere university. Supported by                     legendary Harvard President Lawrence Lowell, Harvard conducted its investigation in secrecy.

                    In 1995, George Haggerty and Bonnie Zimmerman's landmark volume Professions of Desire: Lesbian and Gay Studies                     in Literature--followed by William Spurlin's Lesbian and Gay Studies and the Teaching of English (2000)--began                     addressing the esoteric discussions complicating the intersections among gender, sexuality, and other identity constructs                     within the English classroom. Given the perpetuation of heteronormativity in the educational system, Haggerty                     encourages instructors to help LGBT students "learn about the politics of oppression in their own lives as well as in the                     cultural context that, after all, determines what they mean when they call themselves lesbian or gay."

Yet efforts to protect the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) students and educators, or                     to enhance curricula to better reflect the experience of differing sexual orientations and gender identities, are bitterly                     opposed in the courtroom, at the ballot box, and especially in the schools themselves.

                    ISBN 0415950929 (ISBN13: 9780415950923)

                    Just a decade ago, requests by students to establish groups to support gay and lesbian students were rare and                     generally met with shock and confusion by school administrators and local communities. Today there are more than                     1600 gay straight alliances (GSAs) across the country. Standing Out, Standing Together documents the emergence of                     gay straight alliances in public schools across America - from factors that have contributed to the relatively rapid spread                     of GSA to those that stirred controversy and posed roadblocks. Using over 10 years of interviews with students,                     teachers, administrators and political activists; case studies; and local and national media reports, Miceli explores the                     personal and political stakes involved in the battles over GSAs. 

Queering Elementary Education: Advancing the Dialogue about Sexualities and Schooling

                    ISBN 0847693694 (ISBN13: 9780847693696)

                    Queering Elementary Education is not about teaching kids to be gay, lesbian, bisexual, or straight. ItOs not part of a                     sinister stratagem in the Ogay agenda. O Instead, these provocative and thoughtful essays advocate the creation of                     classrooms that challenge categorical thinking, promote interpersonal intelligence, and foster critical consciousness.                     Queer elementary classrooms are those where parents and educators care enough about their children to trust the                     human capacity for understanding and their educative abilities to foster insight into the human condition. Those who                     teach queerly refuse to participate in the great sexual sorting machine called schooling where diminutive GI Joes and                     Barbies become star quarterbacks and prom queens, while the Linuses and Tinky Winkies become wallflowers or human                     doormats.

                    Recognize the homophobia and anti-gay violence in a respected institution! The only study of its kind, Being Gay and                     Lesbian in a Catholic High School: Beyond the Uniform offers compelling evidence to Catholic educators, clergy, and                     laypeople that their superb academic institutions are not fulfilling the clear mandate of the Church on inclusive loving                     behavior toward sexual minorities.

The experiences recounted in                     this disturbing book range from feeling different and being pressured to date the opposite sex to suffering life-changing                     violence.
