In our 4th grade classroom, we have something called Friday Biographies. As part of our humanities and global studies school wide program, students learn about people they do not generally know who have made significant contributions to our country, society, and/or history. The subjects tend to be women and minorities. I used this Learning Lab to create an introduction to Elizabeth Cady Stanton using different ways of looking at a portrait and the thinking routine,, "I used to think..., but now I think..." before our reading of Elizabeth Leads the Way: Elizabeth Cady Stanton and the Right to Vote. This collection was created in conjunction with the National Portrait Gallery's 2016 Learning to Look Summer Teacher Institute.
