Teaching young students includes a unique combination of social-emotional development and academic training. Often, these skills feel difficult to integrate smoothly into cohesive, standards-based curricula, especially when navigating politically sensitive topics and interacting with a variety of families. In this two-hour webinar, learn how to apply principles of intersectionality, universal design, accessibility, and inclusion in lower ed curriculum and to prepare for complex conversations about gender with young students. This webinar is designed to support that integration, especially as it relates to gender in general and transgender inclusion, specifically.


Building off of foundational knowledge of transgender & non-binary identities offered in TTI’s Foundations of Knowledge & Action: 101 Training, participants will learn to cultivate affirming classrooms- focusing on students in pre-school through 5th grade- in which all students feel safe enough to explore concepts of gender in their formal curriculum, as well as in themselves & alongside their peers. Teachers will have the opportunity to think specifically about their rosters, their upcoming units, and particular questions or situations that have arisen in their school environments. Our goal is for participants to leave feeling confident about essential concepts and effective strategies that will equip themselves, their team, their students and their families to speak accurately about gender as it relates to their own lives and to their academic environments


This webinar is meant for for teachers, administrators, curriculum coordinators, etc to feel equipped to teach accurately about and engage effectively and compassionately in conversations with students and families about gender so that they can create caring, affirming, and safe learning environments for all students.


By the end of this workshop participants will be able to:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of the relationship between intersectionality and inclusion, the importance of impact over intention, and the effect that ignoring conversations about gender has on all students.
  • Identify 3 ways to integrate this understanding into their curriculum
  • Utilize new strategies for navigating conversations with young students about gender
