Diversity Education in Classrooms

Inside Out

Inside Out is a set of freely available video-based teaching resources which aim to decrease homophobic and transphobic bullying. The videos are for use in schools (between years 11-13) and meets key NZ Curriculum and Health Curriculum objectives, including positive relating to others, fostering healthy communities, critical thinking, participating and contributing, sexual health and development, interpersonal skills and attitudes, stereotypes and managing self. Inside Out was created in partnership between RainbowYOUTH, Curative & Core Education.
