INTERSECTIONS & CONNECTIONS LGBTQ-INCLUSIVE CURRICULUM

Our curriculum is a one-time cost per school and includes three intertwined components: virtual professional learning, ongoing support with our monthly office hours and special programming, and our growing library of digital LGBTQ-inclusive primary source-based instructional resources for K-12 classrooms.

 


Our professional learning is facilitated by experts with decades of field experience to provide educators with the intellectual preparation they need to integrate and/or support LGBTQ-inclusive history and academic content with proficiency and confidence.

Virtual Professional Learning


Our curriculum offers up to five (5) hours of live session training for each school with a targeted approach to meet the unique needs of elementary educators or secondary educators. Also included are monthly office hours and special programming for ongoing mentorship and sustainable support.

Optional add-ons include specialized training for parents and community stakeholders.

 

"This was the most helpful professional development that I have ever attended. Not only were issues addressed, but the resources could not be any easier to incorporate into the classroom. They are easily accessible and so impactful." - Hubert, elementary educator

 


Our digital interactive instructional resources broaden history and the social sciences, from colonial Jamestown through the 21st century, and our contextualized approach ensures LGBTQ and all minorities are represented within a more complete, complex, and empowering story of America.

Our curriculum reflects over seven years of research and development by expert classroom teachers, curriculum designers, instructional coaches, historians, archivists, librarians, and education policy leaders. All instructional resources are anchored in copyright-secured primary sources curated from digital and print collections from libraries and archives across the nation, as well as the Library of Congress, National Archives, National Park Service, and more.

In 2019, History UnErased's leadership team co-authored the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) Position Statement on Contextualizing LGBTQ History. Our professional learning, instructional resources, and ongoing mentorship work together to provide K-12 schools with the supports they need to create systemic change, realize the position statement's intent, and advance History UnErased's mission
