Learn Your #LGBT History

Graphic.Coursev3LGBT history is American history. Whether you are a teacher or other educator, increase your knowledge of LGBT history.

In support of the FAIR Education Act and the new History Social Science Framework, CSU Monterey Bay is offering the online course, “LGBT History in Schools” in June and July 2018. Register by May 29.  

There are three (3) options or ways to take this course:

Few teachers have learned the content or pedagogy about LGBT history, the new state history framework, the LGBT rights movement or important LGBT people in history beyond Harvey Milk, the Stonewall Riots and Ellen.

This course will provide content and pedagogy for teaching LGBT history. It is designed specifically for educators who teach history in grades 7-12, but may also be useful for others engaged in youth education, such as GSA advisors, diversity centers, non-profits, or anyone interested in learning more about LGBT history.

Since the course is offered online, most anyone is eligible to register for this course. The course lasts over 6 weeks. Twice weekly discussion boards and weekly online course meetings will be required as part of the instruction in addition to various readings.
