"This workshop is aimed at anyone interested in SOGI, from active allies to those who are still early in their SOGI knowledge journey. Our aim with this workshop is to first situate SOGI 123 in our schools and region. We will be focusing on the how and why SOGI 123 was enacted and its importance and relevance in our classrooms and learning environments. We also aim to address teacher concerns and questions regarding embedding SOGI into the curriculum. Additionally, we will be providing real-life samples, lesson plans, and strategies of SOGI content in the classroom. Lastly, there will be opportunities to practice using SOGI terminology and pronouns as well as addressing homophobic/transphobic sentiments in our schools."
