American Women and the Military in the 20th Century.
Haas, Mary E.
This document presents lesson plans and related materials for teaching about the role of women in the U.S. military from World War I to Desert Storm (the Gulf War). The lesson includes a table showing the number of women who took part in Desert Storm broken down by branch of service. Another chart shows the number of women who served in the military during the 20th century broken down by conflict, and includes World Wars I and II, Korea, Vietnam, Grenada, Panama, and Desert Storm. Teaching procedures for using these charts are given. A 16-item bibliography on women in the military is included. A lesson plan on convincing U.S. women to join in the efforts to win World War I is detailed including objectives, lesson procedures, guide questions and a two-item bibliography. Another lesson on the words of military women is given with the objective of allowing students to identify the feelings of the women toward the United States, military service, and war. Procedures and quotations are given, as well as a five-item bibliography. Representations of 10 posters that urged women to do everything from buying savings bonds during war time to enlisting are included. A world map is provided that shows countries where Women's Army Corps (WAC) personnel served from 1942 to 1978. (DK)
