Gender-Inclusive Teaching

Friday, October 12, 2018

A workshop for teachers and parents with Maya Gonzalez.

Teachers and parents: learn simple, transformative tools and frameworks for including LGBTQ2S+ children and families. Get tips regarding how to speak, look at media, and teach multiple disciplines in the classroom, library, and home. 

Visiting presenter Maya Gonzalez is a Queer/Chicanx artist, progressive educator, and award-winning illustrator and author of children’s books including "Call Me Tree," "They, She, He, Me, Free to Be," and with Ernesto Javier Martinez, "When We Love Someone We Sing to Them / Cuando Amamos Cantamos."

Gonzalez will provide examples of expanded gender inclusion for littles, explore the importance of first voice LGBTQ+ narratives and reflection for young kids, and provide numerous resources related to her holistic/nature-based frame of gender and sexuality for kids. 

This workshop is presented in partnership by Eugene Public Library, Wayne Morse Center for Law & Politics at the UO, and UO Dept. of Ethnic Studies.
