Teaching about the Impact of Homophobia in Sports
By [posts-author-link] on [date]
Examining Homophobia in Sports, developed by the British Columbia Teachers Federation in Canada, provides multiple lesson plans for both elementary and high school classrooms aimed at teaching students about homophobia in sports and its impact on the LGBTQ community. These lesson plans can be used in drama classes, social studies classes, and English classes, and include information on preparation, resources, and possible scenarios. Topics include why some LGBTQ athletes prefer solo sports, gender stereotypes preventing male and female students from participating in certain sports, and why so few professional athletes openly acknowledge their sexual orientation. There is also a section on how schools can create a more inclusive space for LGBTQ students.
