UCLA History Geography Project: Audre Lorde

World-renowned writer Audre Lorde was a "Black lesbian poet and feminist writer," whose work explored "intersections of race, sexuality, gender, poverty, and politics." This lesson plan uses her writing as a platform to discuss intersectionality and identity. Specifically, it guides students to reflect on the question: "How do power and privilege impact the relationships people have with each other as well as with institutions?" Instructors will find guiding questions, learning goals, links to multimedia materials, and a PDF of Lorde's essay "Age, Race, Class, and Sex: Women Redefining Difference." The curriculum is well-suited for upper-level high school history classrooms, and it meets several history and reading Common Core State Standards. The lesson plan was created by UCLA's History-Geography Project, a group collaborating with "educational researchers, historians and practitioners to design and lead professional development programs that enrich K-12 history-social studies instruction." Educators may enjoy the project's other curriculum offerings, including an entire unit of LGBTQ History Lesson Plans.
