This workshop will be in English with French examples. All elementary and secondary teachers are welcome. We are working to become more inclusive of LGBTQ2+ students, staff, and families. Part of that work is examining biases and gaps in curriculum delivery and school practices. This workshop will focus on how we can begin embedding inclusive language in French. Explicit examples will be provided on how to incorporate pronouns in French. There will be opportunities for small group discussions as well as Q & A.
