Curriculum

INTERSECTIONS AND CONNECTIONS

Our digital interactive curriculum for K-12 schools broadens 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.

We're committed to making students' lives better and educators' lives easier.


Our curriculum reflects over six years of research and development by expert classroom teachers, curriculum designers, historians, 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. Read our key conceptual underpinnings here.


Intersections and Connections curriculum is offered as a one-time cost per school and includes our full library of instructional resources, virtual professional learning, and monthly office hours.

Virtual Professional Learning


Our virtual professional learning is a critical component of Intersections and Connections curriculum. This intellectual preparation, with targeted approaches to meet the unique needs of elementary educators and secondary educators, develops proficiency and confidence to integrate and/or support LGBTQ-inclusive curriculum. Our professional learning also includes access to monthly office hours for sustainable support and ongoing mentorship. An optional add-on is our targeted approach for district leaders.

 

"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

 

The National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) Position Statement on Contextualizing LGBTQ History was co-authored by History UnErased's leadership team. Our instructional resources and professional learning work together to provide K-12 schools with the supports they need to create systemic change and realize the position statement's intent. Read the full position statement here.

 

"Like History UnErased, we want to make sure that the students and educators who come after us are not just better off, but are better than us, better at understanding, better at empathy, better at creating a world where all people belong." - Tina L. Haefner, President of NCSS

 

History UnErased's co-founders have presented at the following conferences on integrating LGBTQ-inclusive curriculum: National Council for the Social Studies, National Council for History Education, Organization of American Historians, Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources, New England Library Association, New England League of Middle Schools, and the Massachusetts Association of School Superintendents.
