NCTE LGBTQ Advisory Committee Interest Form
LGBTQ Advisory Committee Interest Form (Open until filled)
The NCTE Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Advisory Committee is charged to develop plans to assist teachers in making schools, colleges, and universities safe and welcoming places for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, gender non-conforming, intersex, queer, and questioning people, and their allies to initiate and sustain a conversation about the relevance of gendered, sexual, and affectional identities to reading and writing lives, to teaching lives, and to the well-being of students; to promote inquiry into issues of sexuality and gender identity and expression in the teaching of literacy and literature; to encourage proposals for presentation of such inquiry through public meetings such as the NCTE Annual Convention; to support individuals in the production of publishable written reports of such inquiry, and to select excellent proposals for inclusion in the Annual Convention.
