INTERSECTIONS & CONNECTIONS CURRICULUM
Our curriculum package is a one-time cost per school or district that includes three intertwined components: primary-source-based digital curriculum for K-12 classrooms that contextualizes LGBTQ history as it intersects with race, gender, class, and nationality; virtual professional learning with a variety of approaches to meet unique needs; and ongoing support with our monthly special sessions.
Digital, Interactive Curriculum for K-12 Classrooms
Intersections & Connections broadens US history and social studies from colonial Jamestown through the 21st century. Much of our curriculum is offered in Spanish and world history curriculum is coming! 100+ primary source-based teaching materials include:
- Thematic units and case studies with teacher's guides and interactive student guides
- Illustrated stories, instructional posters, podcasts, videos, interactive games, book lists, and more!
- One-step functionality to easily share with students (no registration or login)
- Automatic updates and revisions & automatic addition of new content
"When I ask my students at the end of the semester to write about the most important thing they learned, the majority of students wrote about what they learned from your curriculum." - Danielle, high school educator
Virtual Professional Learning
Our curriculum includes virtual professional learning with a targeted approach to meet the unique needs of elementary educators or secondary educators. The live-session training is facilitated by experts with decades of field experience to provide educators with the intellectual preparation they need to integrate our curriculum with proficiency and confidence. Also included are virtual office hours and special programs to be responsive to the evolving needs of teachers and students today.
Add-on training includes specialized options for district leaders, ELL classroom teachers, librarians, informational sessions for parents/caregivers, and youth equity programs.
"This was the most helpful professional development that I have ever attended. Not only were issues addressed, but your curriculum could not be any easier to incorporate into the classroom. They are easily accessible and so impactful." - Hubert, elementary educator
Introducing Our LGBTQ-inclusive Curriculum
In this short video, you will meet Amber, a middle school teacher who is practicing introducing our curriculum during one of our professional learning sessions. You will also meet Ann, Amber's colleague, who reflects on how Amber's approach allows students to see connections to their own identities to enhance their learning and illustrates the intent of our curriculum's contextualized pedagogy.

Our monthly office hours are providing sustainable support for educators, and our unique special programming is providing extended learning opportunities beyond what is included in our curriculum for K-12 classrooms. As we continue to learn from educators about their evolving needs, our digital platform and approach to professional learning continue to evolve, adapt, and ensure we are providing the most educative learning experience for all.
"Your curriculum, books, and the available workshops are very helpful for my classroom and our whole school. Thank you so much for doing this amazing work. The support you provide is unmatched!" - Brian, elementary educator
Our Curriculum Reflects Over Seven Years of Research and Development
Our curriculum is anchored in copyright-secured primary sources curated from digital and print collections from libraries and archives across the nation, as well as the Library of Congress, National Archives, National Park Service, and more. And the expertise of historians, archivists, librarians, classroom teachers, curriculum designers, instructional coaches, and education policy leaders is woven into every aspect of our curriculum.
In 2019, History UnErased's leadership team co-authored the National Council for the Social Studies Position Statement on Contextualizing LGBTQ History. We are providing K-12 schools with the curriculum, training, and support they need to create systemic change, realize the position statement's intent, and advance our mission of putting LGBTQ history in its rightful place–the classroom.
