⊕ Intersections & Connections Curriculum Reflects Over Ten Years of Research and Development

The expertise of historians, archivists, librarians, classroom teachers, curriculum designers, instructional coaches, and education policy leaders is woven into every aspect of the curriculum and professional learning and reflects over ten years of research and development. A hallmark of Intersections & Connections is perpetuity and sustainability which includes ongoing refinements, content additions, and privacy and security vigilance.   

In 2019, History UnErased's leadership team co-authored the National Council for the Social Studies Position Statement on Contextualizing LGBTQ History. We are providing K-12 schools with the curriculum, training, and ongoing support they need to realize the position statement's vision of advancing the ideals of American democracy through the process of history, civics, and social studies education.
