While there is substantial LGBTQ content at multiple grade levels and throughout the Framework, 11th grade is the place where the bulk of the content appears, for obvious reasons. Teaching about the 20th century U.S. means understanding the development of both LGBTQ communities and the emergence and elaboration of an LGBTQ rights and liberation movement. In this session, educators will engage with several key entry points into this content and its related concepts: The Harlem Renaissance (1910s-1930s) and the Lavender Scare and Related LGBTQ Rights Movements (1940s-1960s). Using both primary and secondary sources, educators will workshop various possible ways to integrate this content into their existing curricula with methods based in inquiry, interpretation, and critical thinking. This session takes an intersectional approach to this history and our classrooms--it is attentive to the ways that race, class, gender, and sexuality must be understood as interrelated social dynamics of power, meaning making, and identity. This session aligns with Framework Chapter 16 (pp. 392, 411, 415, 421).
