In February of 2019, Governor Phil Murphy signed LGBTQ inclusive curriculum legislation into law. This new legislation took effect in the 2020-2021 school year, which affects grades 6-12 in all subject areas. The NJEA, Make it Better for Youth, and Garden State Equality are working to build units and lessons to provide teachers with resources that align with the new legislation for the coming year. This session will build on those resources to allow teachers to authentically provide students with instruction around the contributions of LGBTQ people.

Video-Recorded Virtual (Zoom) Sessions and Tips to Maintain your Privacy during a Recorded Session: As an added value, all virtually-delivered programs are video recorded and accessible to our workshop registrants and Professional Learning Consortium Members subsequent to the session. Therefore, each virtually-delivered workshop and webinar will now have Zoom’s Recording Disclaimer enabled by default. With this feature, attendees will receive a notification when a recording starts or if they join a session that is already being recorded. The participant can then consent to stay in the session and be recorded or choose to leave the session altogether.
Tips to Maintain your Privacy during a Virtually-Delivered Session: Actively engaging in Zoom sessions is important. Participants may have concerns, however, of a Zoom session recording capturing their participation. Meeting hosts or instructors are taking steps to minimize this concern. In addition to the consent, participants can also use the following steps and features to take control of what is shared when a session is being recorded.
Please refer to Zoom’s Attendee Controls for more information on how to use these features.
