Votes For Women

0 Favorites 1 Copy (view)
Social Studies +3 Age Level Middle School (13 to 15 years old)

This playlist on the movement for Woman Suffrage is designed for self-guided learning with intermittent check-ins for middle school age students. The learning tasks are divided over five days, designed for 30-35 minutes per day, and build on each other. However, students are able to work on this playlist at their own pace. They will engage with primary and secondary sources as well as online exhibitions, videos, and written texts. Students can complete the tasks online by connecting through Google classroom for each formative and summative assessment.

By the end of the week, students will prepare and write an argument about how young people today can learn from the tactics of the suffragists and what strategies work now to address current public issues.

  • Formative assessments are represented by a chevron (Learning Check Ins and Daily Check Ins).
  • Google Doc versions of all formative and summative assessments are in the tiles immediately after the digital versions.
