10 New lesson plans devised by teachers at Schools OUT UK for The Proud Trust’s project This Is How We Got Here, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. This is How We Got Here aimed to uncover hidden stories of LGBT activism and civil rights history over the period 1960 to 2000. Throughout the project personal, national and international stories were recalled and shared by people who had been active in education, youth work and the Manchester gay scene years ago. They were documented by 51 young people aged 14-25 from youth clubs in Stockport (Stockport Wednesdays), Wythenshawe (WyNotLGBT) and Manchester (Lesbian and Gay Youth Manchester (LGYM) and the Young Women’s Group), via a wide range of exciting, educational and empowering activities. A part-time project coordinator, Cliodhna Devlin, supported a Heritage Worker in each of the youth groups, who in turn recruited and supported the young researchers.
The interviews were used as the basis for 10 lessons in secondary education covering history, PSHE and citizenship, geography and science. Download them from the right.
