Safe and ​I​nclusive ​S​paces for LGBTQ ​St​udents

History teaches us that democracies are fragile and that a thriving democracy requires engaged citizens who are able to embrace difference, disagreement, and dissent. Join Facing History for a series of workshops throughout the school year that provide strategies and resources educators can use to help students recognize that their choices can contribute to a thriving democracy.


In this first workshop of the series, we will explore the connections between homophobia and bullying. Through an exploration of LGBTQ-themed resources that focus on the lives of individuals who successfully fought to make their communities safer places, this workshop will:

  • help teachers and students recognize the impact of their voices and choices in creating or discouraging a culture of respect for all individuals

  • introduce resources that educators can use to make classroom content more inclusive of LGBTQ experiences

  • model teaching strategies that will strengthen students' literacy skills and promote greater civil dialogue, especially around LGBTQ issues


Recommended for middle and high school teachers.


After this workshop you will:

  • Become part of the Facing History educator network, with access to a rich slate of educator resources, including downloadable unit and lesson plans, study guides, and multimedia

  • Be able to borrow books and DVDs through our online lending library at no cos
