Cushioning the impact

Brief description of the issue

Youth with the highest buy-in of gender stereotypes are the ones who drop out of school the most (CSÉ, 1999). In order to foster school retention, healthy relationships between boys and girls as well as everyone’s well-being at school, it is important to facilitate activities specifically created to break down gender stereotypes with children.

Cushioning the impact is a learning and evaluation situation (LES) created by the LGBT Family Coalition for the Ethics and religious culture course (1st cycle).

Videos needed to facilitate the activity are accessible below:

You can download the activity document directly on the LGBT Family Coalition website or in the documents section below.
