Abstract

This study investigated the self-efficacy of content area, methods instructors (n = 395) in working with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual+ (LGBTQIA+) pre-service students, teaching LGBTQIA+ content in their methods courses and helping pre-service teachers reduce their bias and prejudice against LGBTQIA+ individuals. The study revealed that literacy and social studies methods instructors had a higher sense of self-efficacy than their mathematics and science counterparts. Participants had a higher sense of self-efficacy in working with LGBTQIA+ students than teaching LGBTQIA+ content. Participants employ a variety of pedagogical strategies to implement LGBTQIA+ content in methods courses.
