Perks of Being at NWP: Stopping "that's so gay"

If you frequently hear "that's so gay" in your school hallways or find yourself struggling to combat homophobic attitudes in your students, you need to read about this session:
this afternoon I attended a fantastic session called Under the Social Justice Umbrella: Using Literature and Writing to Combat Homophobia, featuring TCs from the UCLA Writing Project.
The group decided to tackle LGBT issues through the popular teen novel The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky.

For activities related to this and other recommend texts, check out a full recap of the session at http://rcwp.wikispaces.com/Christine_Fisher
