Students and Gender Identity
USC Rossier School of Education has recently published a resource titled "Students and Gender Identity" - a toolkit for schools to help create and develop inclusive spaces for transgender and gender non-conforming communities. The toolkit currently includes the following resources:
"How to Communicate with Parents and Staff": FAQs that educators may receive from parents or school staff about the topic of gender identity, as well as strategies on how to shape these conversations.
"How to Create Inclusive Classrooms": Action steps to support educators in creating a welcoming and inclusive environment.
"23 Terms Educators Should Know": Glossary of commonly used terms to describe aspects of gender identity and expression.
