Seems like the “Wallflowers” activity could benefit from a language tweak so that it’s not about pairing girls and boys — reinforcing centuries of heteronormativity and giving any students who aren’t interested in the opposite sex one more reason to feel ostracized.
Andrew, I addressed your concerns with a gay student of mine. He understands that the vast majority of the students at a school dance will be heterosexually paired, so this lesson would not be an issue for him.
I don’t know if using your student as a representative of the entire LGBTQ community is either fair to him or an indicator of anyone else’s feelings…
Agreed. Until those tweaks are done, the lesson has been taken down. Thank you for the dialogue on this.
You’ve given me something to think about. The lesson is twenty years old, so a “tweak.” may be good. Suggestions are welcome.
