Last Call: Survey on Preparing Educators to Work With LGBTQ Students
Are your teacher candidates prepared to work with LGBTQ students? We’d like to learn about your perspectives and practices in our joint survey with the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) and the Association of Teacher Educators (ATE), which closes September 15.
In educator preparation, we continually strive to prepare teachers to be more inclusive of and responsive to the range of human diversity their students bring. To help inform this work, it’s useful to survey the field periodically to monitor trends in practice and define a course for moving forward.
AACTE is glad to partner with GLSEN and ATE to do just that. The survey is designed to look at how we prepare teacher candidates around inclusive instruction for LGBTQ students—and for all students. This study is founded on the moral imperative that all students deserve teachers who genuinely are concerned both for their learning and for their well-being.
The survey was opened last spring, and we appreciate the responses we’ve received to date. Now we are in the final push for participation to obtain as broad a sample as possible. If you have not yet responded, we’d love to hear from you: the scholars, practitioners, and researchers who are doing the work and tackling issues of inclusion every day.
After the survey closes, several participants will be randomly selected to win a $100 Amazon.com gift card! While the gift certificate is some motivation, we are hoping that the equity/inclusion topic will compel many more of you to participate. Your opinion matters!
Please respond by September 15 at http://www.teacheredsurvey.org/.
