The Gender Wheel Curriculum provides a holistic & nature-based approach to gender and draws from multiple disciplines for a broader understanding. Learning begins at the center star of the Wheel and expands out through the Pronoun, Inside, Body, and Relationship Circles.
Language acquisition, suppressed history, binary thinking and implicit bias are also addressed. This reorients students toward a fundamental base of dignity and respect outside of systemic gender oppression.
Incorporating inclusive perspectives and practices at every level of the curriculum support a stronger sense of self, while creating systemic change in the world at large.
Adaptable to any age. Currently available materials focus on Ages 0-10.
