Reflection Nov 26, 2018 (Socials 10)

Last week we talked about the SOGI 123 curriculum . I’m on the fence about implementing this program because I don’t really agree with how they have set up the curriculum but I am not against teaching gender Identity and Sexual orientation in schools. I don’t agree with how they set up the curriculum because for one, it only focuses on gender Identity and Sexual orientation. There are many other reasons kids are bullied in school. For example kids with physical or mental disabilities. For two, it states “Classroom materials and activities will contain positive images and accurate information about sexual and/or gender diversity” which is a good thing but it doesn’t talk about physical, emotional and mental problems that could arise with these certain lifestyles. But to fix this program that would have to give kids all of the information. For example some of the heath problems that could occur. And to fix this program we would have to incorporate other minorities that are bullied or make another program for that.

  1. But aren’t these physical, emotional and mental problems strongly tied to how society treats others?
    Absolutely, other groups need to be “normalized” in our discourse but at least they’re working on LGBTQ2.

    What did you think about the events in history? Is Canada making good progress politically and socially towards acceptance?

    • I do agree with you on the first one but I think they should do a bit more work on their program and add another program focusing on other discriminated groups.

      And about the events in our history, I do think Canada is making progress politically but progress socially takes a bit of time to catch up.
