This is a three-day workshop that takes place on August 2, 3, and 4.
LGBTQ is a relatively modern acronym, but history is brimming with examples of individuals who participated in same-sex relationships or tested the boundaries of gender norms. This workshop will explore ideas about sexual orientation and gender identity through the lives of New Englanders. Our investigations will take us from the Puritan era through the twenty-first century, as well as to local repositories and historic sites. Participants will also work with primary sources and curricular materials that will help contextualize current debates over LGBTQ rights.
This program is open to all K-12 educators. Teachers can earn 45 PDPs or two graduate credits (for an additional fee).
