Challenging Homophobia: Teaching About Sexual Diversity

by Edited by Lutz van Dijk and Barry van Driel - £21.99  Trentham Books Ltd (2007)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781858564135 | ISBN 10: 1858564131

Challenging Homophobia brings together accounts of how educators in various national and cultural contexts are dealing with prejudice, discrimination, stereotyping and sometimes overt violence against sexual minorities, particularly lesbian and gay youth and adults. The contributors emphasise the importance of changing the prejudicial attitudes of people who believe that their homophobic views on sexuality are morally superior.
 
The book provides a valuable combination of reflections on the underlying psychological and social processes and suggestions for better educational practice, including tested lesson plans and inspiring resources for challenging the social ill of homophobia.
 
With its insights into the effective and creative methods developed in nine different countries to address homophobia, this book is essential for educators, students and learners and will interest academic readers.
