Understanding and Teaching U.S. Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender History
With the rise of LGBT awareness, and some states mandating that LGBT issues be incorporated into history curriculums, many educators might be at a loss for how to do that. This is where this book comes in, and it will be an excellent resource not only for new teachers but existing teachers who need some guidance on how to approach this topic. This book is a collection of essays of how to teach LGBT history, how to use the past even though terms have changed, and where to find material that you can incorporate into the classroom. The book is split into a couple of different sections, and each chapter takes on a different topic. Some explore specific issues in detail, while others explain how to use film in the classroom, from Hollywood films to documentaries.
This book is well put together with the chapters being relativity short so as not to get bogged down in the details. The authors understand this will be controversial issue, and they present it in such a way that it would go over well in high school and college classrooms without causing much trouble.
