Including LGBTQ People, Challenges, and Achievements in the study of World War II History

The interwar period provided an opportunity for new ideas and freedoms in Weimar Germany, Europe, and the United States. The Nazi regime put an end to that, and the restrictions and biases which targeted LGBTQ individuals during the 1930s and WWII continued long after the war itself. In this collaborative workshop with the ONE Archives Foundation, participants will deepen their capacity to teach about World War II with attention to the FAIR Education Act and the needs of our diverse students, by exploring the specific histories of: 

 

Co-hosted by the ONE Archives Foundation, this workshop will: 

  • Provide resources and tools for educators to teach a more accurate and inclusive history of World War II

  • Include a tour of the ONE Archives, the largest LGBTQ Archive in the United States

  • Provide interactive strategies for engaging student voices, experiences, and inquiry into the study of history

 

This workshop is particularly relevant for 10th grade World History teachers, but all are welcome.
