"I didn't know this book was missing from the trans canon until I read it, and now I am so thrilled it exists. Excellent resource for teachers and workshop leaders. There's so much here! And I'm so glad that compilations of exercises like this exist—perhaps it can help us to stop relying on trans folks to teach trans liberation."

Get Toolkit facilitation support in TTI's Training of Trainers

TTI’s TOT is a professional development course for educators, trainers and facilitators who are interested in teaching transgender content to cisgender adults in professional development settings.  Over the course of the TOT, we break down each of the elements of a successful “Transgender 101” training, explore the nuances of facilitation, and help our participants to hone skills to deliver highly impactful trainings. 

Using the Toolkit as a textbook for this course, we help prepare educators to implement the lesson plans included in the book and provide support around aspects of facilitation such as responding to Frequently Asked Questions, handling challenging participants, addressing microaggressions and managing resistance or social justice fatigue — with additional discussion and demonstration of translating in-person learning to online classrooms.
