This week is to find different source from the Library Database towards my topic. First, I used the Jstor to look on the LGBT topic. Rather than having result on the exactly topic, I found some articles about education and LGBT in school life.
YOUR ART IS GAY AND RETARDED: Eliminating Discriminating Speech Against Homosexual and Intellectually Disabled Students in the Secondary Arts Education Classroom
Language Arts Teachers’ Resistance to Teaching LGBT Literature and Issues
A Challenge for Art Education: Including Lesbians and Gays
These helps me realised more on how teachers taught or refused teaching their students about the topic of LGBT. Therefore, it mentioned whether the education with personal experience and perspective affects students to absorb the message in a positive or negative way. It shows the importance of education on developing students opinions and understand there is no difference with the people inside the LGBT community through different aspects no matter it is art or not. However, people argued that it was not effective to teach homosexual related issue inside the classroom. One of the articles mentioned that conflicts would happen as religious points and people did not agreed the “lifestyle” of LGBT people (Thein 173).
