Sex? Sexual Orientation? Gender Identity? Gender Expression?
When a student who “looks like a boy” chooses to wear dresses and skirts. When a hard-of-hearing student seems to be doing well in a mainstream classroom but fails her tests. When a colleague repeatedly humiliates another and no one says anything.

Don't miss the cover story—a closer look at the language of gender and sexual identity, including an downloadable classroom-friendly poster.
