The 2011 SB 48 "FAIR Act'' and the new History Social-Science Framework required the incorporation of the contributions of LGBTQIA+ people  into our curriculum. Why should you include this content in your curriculum? How do we talk about the history of people in the United States and World History whom we might today define as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender? Where do we put this content?

This training will provide instructional strategies and resources to effectively implement the FAIR Act, specifically focusing on the LGBTQ community. 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.

About California Council for Social Studies

The California Council for Social Studies leadership and OER Project believe that teachers are the key to providing students with the skills and knowledge necessary to lead our country into the future. In that spirit, we are collaborating to provide a series of workshops for teachers looking to add a few new tools to their toolbox. Developing students’ skills in any social studies classroom is imperative for understanding the content. These sessions will dive deep into a particular skill and leave you with ideas and tools that can be implemented immediately in your classroom.  OER Project team members will work with the CCSS to design each session with your needs in mind. We are excited to begin this partnership and look forward to learning together throughout the school year.
