Supporting Students ~ Saving Lives - 3rd Annual National Educator Conference
According to recent data, nine out of ten LGBT youth were harassed at school and have a drop out rate nearly three times the national average. When students don’t feel safe, they are less likely to learn and more likely to give up on school altogether. For the past two and a half years, CESCaL has brought together national leaders in education and LGBT experts to empower and teach educators the attitudes, knowledge, and skills necessary to create needed change in schools.
In addition to attendance and participation in the entire course, each student will submit a three- to five-page paper (double-spaced, 650-word minimum) synthesizing the various experiences that took place during this course. Describe the best concepts or practices that you learned and how you will integrate or apply them in your work. This assignment is due by 3/12/12.
Please include a cover page with your name, contact information, schedule number, and course title. You may submit this paper via email, postal mail, or fax to: Jennifer Barrett, program coordinator, San Diego State University, College of Extended Studies, 5250 Campanile Drive, Room 2503, San Diego, CA 92182-1920; firstname.lastname@example.org; Fax: (619) 594-8566.
