Getting ready for Benjamin : preparing teachers for sexual diversity in the classroom

This collection argues that issues of sexual diversity are inextricably interwoven into the basic concerns of pre-service teacher education. The essays range from an analysis of gay teacher educators and heterosexual allies who are challenging homophobia and heterosexism in their classrooms.
