Education to the Core is Showing Its PRIDE!


The month of June brings with it the celebration of PRIDE!  This is a celebration of all that the LGBTQ+ community has accomplished. It is also meant to be a recognition of the decades-long — and still ongoing — fight for equal rights. Here are some resources for you to use with your students year-round to highlight LGBTQ+ history and celebrate Pride Month. These resources will help to foster conversations amongst your students about acceptance, identity, and promote tolerance.

When it comes to topics like gay marriage, gender roles, and LGBTQ+ rights a common response is “this is a family matter, not for a classroom”.  Here at Education to the Core, we continue to strive to release material and encourage teachers to include multi-cultural texts and media within their daily instruction.   LGBTQ+ is no exception.

One of our goals as teachers is to encourage children to be inclusive, accepting, open-minded and empathetic.  By excluding whole populations of families and individuals, we are doing an injustice to our students.  Teachers lay the foundations and allow students to create their own path creating their own personal beliefs and self-ethics. 

We hope you find these Pride Month resources helpful. As an organization, ETTC will continue to share blogs and resources that promote diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging. These resources should not just be used for one month, but all year round. 

In addition, if you have resources to share with us, be sure to put them in the comments below! Together, we will work towards the goal of inclusion of everyone. We are looking forward to hearing from you.
