This age-appropriate lesson plan explores the professional contributions of Alan Turing, the gay "Father of Computer Science", the progenitor of Artificial Intelligence, his pivotal role in World War II, and the forces that drove him to his tragic death. Like all Legacy Project lesson plans, this document highlights four different learning tracks according to James Banks's multicultural education model and Bloom's Taxonomy. Tracks 1 - 4 are roughly structured to align with the cognitive retention and synthesis capabilities of students from early-to-mid Elementary School (Track 1); late Elementary-to-early Middle School (Track 2); late Middle School-to-early High School (Track 3); and early-to-late High School.

Suggested Study Subject Integration: Mathematics, Computer Science, World War II, International Studies, LGBTQ History
