Last featured in the 1-22-2016 Scout Report, GLSEN's inclusive curriculum offers useful resources for educators wishing to incorporate LGBT History Month into their classrooms.
The Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network (GLSEN) has assembled an excellent repository of resources for educators who would like to ensure that LGBT students see themselves reflected in classroom lessons. Here, readers will find articles about the now-classic children's book Heather Has Two Mommies, links to resources dedicated to celebrating LGBT history month, and an engaging section called Unheard Voices: Stories and Lessons for Grades 6-12. This last section includes brief audio interviews with LGBT activists, as well as classroom materials and thematic lessons. Elementary teachers will also find much to appreciate in the Ready, Set, Respect! Elementary Toolkit, which develops diversity-focused lessons that encourage elementary school students to be respectful and inclusive.
