The Life and Times of...Women. A Bibliography of Women's Biographies for Use in Various Secondary School Curricular Areas.
Bachmann, Gail
Secondary teachers and librarians will find the bibliography a helpful tool for identifying women's biographies. Biographies are valuable for building reading skills, background of a subject, or personal development. These biographies are appealing to young people on the basis of subject interest, reading level, depth of detail, and writing style. Suitability for junior high students is indicated where it is appropriate. Impact of sexism is evident in the lack of references to women in the fields of business and science. Ethnic group representation is good for Blacks but less comprehensive for Oriental, Jewish, Mexican-American, and American Indian women. The 141 entries are presented in four categories: Background Reading, Bibliographies of Biographies of Women, Individual Biographies, and Collective Biographies. The 63 individual biographies comprise the main section of the document. Provided are title, author, publisher, date, length, and extensive annotations. A range of women, interests, and life styles are included, such as Marie Curie, Billie Jean King, Elizabeth Blackwell (first woman doctor), Mahalia Jackson, Golda Meir, Eleanor Roosevelt, and a 15-year-old girl stricken with cancer. A subject index categorizes entries in areas such as career education, music, American problems, family living, and ethnic studies. (Author/AV)
