Two Informative Videos Highlighting LGBTQ History and Curriculum Inclusion
The Legacy Project, in conjunction with our partners at Illinois Safe Schools Alliance, Public Health Institute of Metropolitan Chicago, and Equality Illinois, is working steadily away to create LGBTQ-inclusive teaching tools that will be incorporated into Illinois K-12 public school classrooms beginning with the fall 2020/21 school year. To stay up-to-date on development news and to learn how you can volunteer your time to help with this effort, please sign-up to receive the ICL Newsletter HERE.
The Legacy Project Education Initiative (LPEI) is part of a comprehensive strategy to address the despair that can sometimes grip LGBTQ youth, many of whom live in isolation, without historically significant role models. It has been internationally recognized as a powerful tool to combat anti-LGBTQ bullying in our schools by directly confronting the ignorance that makes it possible. These age appropriate resources - lesson plans, study guides, question banks, and multimedia - are part of the teaching tools being prepared for the LGBTQ-Inlcusive Curriculum launching in Illinois public schools in Fall 2020.
