CHILDREN SHOULD LEARN QUEER THEORY IN ELEMENTARY SCIENCE CLASS, ARGUES SCIENCE PROFESSOR

[4/22/17]  Stop ‘hiding’ sexuality from them

A science education professor at the University of Arizona believes elementary schoolchildren are being taught “heteronormative” and “limited” ideas in science classrooms, and queer theory and sexuality-infused curricula is the answer.

Kristin Gunckel discussed her ideas in a March 23 lecture hosted by the public university’s Institute for LGBT studies.

She explored “how queer theory can be a useful tool for re-imagining elementary science education and elementary science teacher preparation,” according to a webpage advertising the lecture.

A university spokesman, speaking on Gunckel’s behalf, told The College Fix in an email that social scientists use queer theory to urge others to look differently at norms they have never questioned, and that Gunckel used her talk to suggest a way of looking differently at science education.

The webpage, which gives an overview of the lecture, lists three areas Gunckel intended to focus on. One included “inviting sexuality into the elementary science classroom.”
