Primary school teachers' conceptions of pedagogical responses to concepts of diverse sexualities

van Leent, Lisa J. (2014) Primary school teachers' conceptions of pedagogical responses to concepts of diverse sexualities. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis reports on a social constructionist study that identified teachers' conceptions of their pedagogical responses to concepts of diverse sexualities in primary schools in Queensland. The study shows that teachers face a range of scenarios in which students raise awareness of diverse sexualities as part of their everyday experiences, yet teachers have little guidance about how to respond.
