K-12 educators and school leaders from across the nation are invited to participate in a full-week intensive seminar August 7th – 11th in Lowell, MA to launch HUE’s pilot program for the 2017/18 academic school year.
Intensive Seminar Description: K-12 educators and school leaders will be introduced to queer theory and LGBTQ history to facilitate their inclusion of LGBTQ-inclusive academic content in core subjects. Focus will be on inquiry-based instruction (grounded in multimedia primary and secondary source analysis) to improve the social-emotional and academic learning of all students. Topics include:
- rationale for LGBTQ-inclusive curricula
- overarching concepts of queer theory
- key aspects of LGBTQ history
- evolving laws and policies for LGBTQ rights
- behavior analytic / public health perspective
- strategies for infusion
The seminar includes never-seen-before (and never-heard-before) primary and secondary sources from the Library of Congress, ONE Archives Foundation and the Smithsonian Institution, as well as expert guest speakers and a special program from the National Park Service. All participants will receive HUE’s K-12 LGBTQ Academic Inquiry Series and will be requested to participate in a collaborative mentorship program.
60 PDPs or 3 graduate credits (for an additional $330)
If you are unable to attend the seminar, and let us know at least one week prior, History UnErased will issue a full refund minus a 10% service fee.
*Sponsored in part by the Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources Eastern Region Program, coordinated by Waynesburg University
History UnErased’s visionary leadership is helping to change hearts and minds among a rising generation of sophisticated global citizens. Indeed, the work of History UnErased is truly remarkable, precisely the kind of thing that enlightened education can produce.
At a time when LGBTQ rights are being won across the country, we need curricular offerings and educational approaches that give voice to the histories, experiences, struggles, and aspirations of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people. It is a great honor for me, after many years toiling in the trenches of academia and advocacy, to bear witness to this transformative work.
