Rethinking Schools Seeking Articles About Sexism, Gender & Sexuality in Schools

Our friends at Rethinking Schools are seeking articles from educators and students that relate "to teaching and learning about sexism, gender, and sexuality in K-12 schools." The working title is Rethinking Sexism, Gender, and Sexuality. They are especially interested in "articles about classroom teaching, curriculum, and youth activism—in and out of school."

According to their email: "We hope to address gender and sexuality across the curriculum so teachers and students of all disciplines are encouraged to contribute. Other topics may include education organizing/activism, policy matters, and stories that offer historical perspectives with a connection to the present." They're not interested in academic or scholarly articles; rather, they want to hear from students and educators about their experiences related to the topic.

They're offering two examples of articles that fit the criteria they're looking for: "It's OK to Be Neither" by Melissa Bollow Tempel and "When the Gender Boxes Don't Fit," by Ericka Sokolower-Shain, and their website includes writers guidelines.

Submissions should be sent electronically (Word.doc) by January 31, 2013 to jody@rethinkingschools.org. Submissions should be no more than 4,000 words, and they are "generally interested in articles that are substantially shorter."
