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 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.
the cost is $475 and 60 PDPs or 3 graduate credits (for an additional $330) may be earned. For more information, visit https://unerased.org/summer-institute/.
