Women in American History Unit.
Seiferth, Berniece B.; Bennett, Barbara
This teaching unit was developed to highlight the role of women in American history. Written for the junior and senior high school level, the unit examines how women's role has changed, what contributions were made by women in the almost 400 years of our history, effects of the women's rights and suffragist movement of the 19th century, and changes accomplished by the current women's movement. Objectives include development of the ability to compare American ideas of masculinity and femininity with those of other cultures, discuss Freud's opinions about women, explain how scientists and anthropologists have analyzed the conditioning of American women, and discuss contributions of specific women during specific periods of history. The unit contains pre- and posttests, a list of 25 objectives, suggestions of content material for each of 15 days, background issues with related study questions, and a bibliography of 25 resources.
