It’s important to feel sure you’re choosing and using quality LGBT-inclusive resources, especially if you’re using resources made by someone else.
Resources you use in the classroom should be evidence based: any claims and arguments should be backed up by solid evidence (this can include quantitative data, such as statistics from research, and qualitative data, such as case studies or quotes from interviews).
A good place to start looking for suggested resources is Annex B to the statutory guidance, which includes Stonewall’s resources and resources by others.
In our guide to LGBT-inclusive RSHE, Putting it into Practice, you’ll find checklists and prompt questions to help you feel confident:
- identifying an LGBT-inclusive resource
- identifying a trans-inclusive resource
- exploring the evidence base of a resource
