Notable Women: Grades 4-6.
Morris-Lipsman, Arlene J.
These lesson plans compose a classroom guide to teach about notable women in history. Traditionally, many fields were closed to women and only recently have women made strides in achieving professional careers. Some women, however, succeeded in becoming known throughout the world and became pioneers in their respective fields. The lives and career struggles of 23 successful women are used as the foundation for lessons and models for classroom teaching. Discussion questions are included with each of the individual biographies and each unit encourages students to question and imagine the struggles women encountered. Each segment reinforces key concepts and all activities emphasize critical and creative thinking skills involving written, oral, dramatic and art projects. Students also are asked to complete a chart comparing the lives of the women presented. Included among the 23 biographies are Louisa May Alcott, Benazir Bhutto, Amelia Earhart, Sandra Day O'Conner, Sally Ride, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Harriet Tubman. (NL)
