Join Headteacher Lindsay Skinner and Polari Prize-winning poet John McCullough to discuss:
- the importance of teaching LGBTQ+ inclusive texts and writers to students, including looking at the impact on students and wider school culture
- how you can weave more LGBTQ+ inclusive texts and writers into your KS3 curriculum, such as John's powerful poem ‘Queer-Cole' with your Year 9 pupils
John's poem ‘Queer-Cole’ explores the theme of homophobia through the extended metaphor of a counterfeit coin. The poem features in the new Collins Who We Are anthology for KS3 and Lindsay has written the supporting lesson plan.
Who We Are is a new anthology compiled by an expert panel of writers and teachers. It is designed to support you to weave more representative and inclusive contemporary texts and writers into your Key Stage 3 English curriculum. The resources are fully editable, downloadable and photocopiable so you can teach flexibly and share them across your department.
