What is SOGIE?
SOGIE stands for Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity and Expression. This term recognizes all sexual orientations and gender identities, including heterosexual and cisgender.
Good teaching includes helping students process their thoughts and feelings about the world and creating space for them to bring their full selves to school. This document, Courageous Conversations with Students, provides tools, lesson plans, and practical advice for facilitating dialogues with students about power, privilege, oppression, and resistance.
