Unheard Voices: Stories of LGBT History

Recognizing "the lack of representation of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people in school curricula," as well as the "disproportionate incidents of bullying and violence against LGBT youth," Unheard Voices: Stories of LGBT History offers educators many inclusive instructional activities. At the link, educators can download individual lesson plans or the entire (nearly) 50-page curriculum. Five lessons are provided and each lesson plan meets several Common Core State Standards. Designed for middle and high school students, lesson topics include "The Invisibility of LGBT People in History" and "Understanding Gender Identity." Educators will also find a series of biographies, interviews, and transcripts from "individuals who bore witness to or helped shape LGBT history in some way." While these interviews are included in the various lesson plans, they also make for great stand-alone reading. Unheard Voices is a collaboration between the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), GLSEN, and StoryCorps. Readers who are fans of this curriculum, will find many more resources on the ADL's Education page.
