Including LGBT history in your curriculum is a great way to create a safe space for not only LGBT, but all students. From our 2007 National School Climate Survey, we know that only 10% of LGBT students are taught positive representations of LGBT people, history and events. But when students are taught about these topics, they feel more a part of their school, report feeling safer in school and are less likely to skip school.
This activity is designed as a fun and interactive way to raise studentsí awareness of LGBT people and the contributions they made in the history of the United States. Students will learn about key events in the LGBT civil rights movement. Students will have an opportunity to create signs regarding these events to spread awareness throughout the school.
