These resources, designed for recognizing Women's History Week in Vermont elementary and secondary classrooms, are suitable for use nationwide. Oral history materials include recommended strategies for conducting oral history projects, a list of general interview questions, sample questionnaires for interviews concerning women's work and immigrant women, and follow-up information on recording oral history. Teacher background information and a timeline of Future Homemakers in American history are provided as resources for encouraging a discussion of women in the context of homemaking and consumer education. An index of American women contains references to over 200 women, living and dead, who have made contributions to American society in the arts, politics and government, education, economics, and civil rights. An annotated bibliography of women's history materials in the Vermont Department of Education Sex Equity Library contains 13 citations. A second bibliography on women in Vermont from 1800-1920 contains over 100 citations divided into categories on family life, education, religion, work, women's rights, and medicine. A list of 20 facts on women workers from the U.S. Department of Labor provides a point of departure for discussion of women as an economic force.
