School Curriculum

For members of the LGBTQ+ community it is sometimes hard to find places that they belong, sometimes people believe they don’t belong in our community.  It is important to practice being respectful no matter what you, your friends, or your family may believe.  We can learn to be respectful of the LGBTQ+ community by learning about being Fair (Equity), being Ourselves (Identity), being mindful of the past (History), and being a great friend (Allyship).

This curriculum has been designed to be delivered by an educator who has completed the Alphabet Soup Train the Trainer Course.  It is also advised that the educator has completed a GLSEN Professional Development Workshop.

Ideally Alphabet Soup is implemented within a setting that is also utilizing the GLSEN inclusive curriculum resources and four pillar approach to creating inclusive schools.
