Chapter 2 Reflection Questions
- Did your teacher preparation program include sexual orientation and gender identity in its curriculum?
- What were your experiences with multicultural education as a teacher candidate? What were some of the highlights and shortcomings of the curriculum, instruction, and overall learning experience?
- How would you describe your professional dispositions? In other words, what values, commitments, and ethics guide your work as an educator? What is your current disposition toward queerness as it relates to teaching and learning?
- How do you see curriculum and instruction, reflection, and teacher dispositions interrelated? How might contemplating a response to this question help you in assessing your current effectiveness in working with queer youth?
