About the EduGuide
Shortly after the first It Gets Better® video was uploaded to YouTube, the campaign went viral. By now, over 60,000 videos have been shared. Finding Pride: Official Discussion and Activity Guide takes a look at 33 of these compelling stories divided into six themes or lesson plans.
Each lesson plan comes with a variety of questions and activities to enjoy. It’s perfect for a GSA group or club meeting, during family night, in a classroom, or anywhere inclusivity is encouraged. It’s intended for those in middle or high school, but can be adapted for audiences of all ages.
Finding Pride was made in collaboration with Journeys in Film, a nonprofit organization harnessing the storytelling power of film to educate the most visually literate generation in history.
The 33 videos featured in Finding Pride are available to watch for free on the It Gets Better Project’s YouTube channel. The videos for each lesson plan have been organized below in individual playlists.
Lesson 1: Pride and Coming Out (5 videos)
Lesson 2: Pride and Community (6 videos)
Lesson 3: Pride and Race (4 videos)
Lesson 4: Pride and Gender (5 videos)
Lesson 5: Pride and Faith (6 videos)
