In Search of Our Past: Units in Women's History. World History Student Manual.
Hurwitz, Suzanne, Ed.; And Others
This junior high school level student manual contains three units on the role of women in world history. The units, designed to supplement what is customarily taught in world history courses at this level, are entitled Women Under Feudalism: Western Europe and China, Women in the Industrial Revolution, and Women in Change: 20th Century Women in Transition. Readings for Unit I include a narrative about the marriage of two 11-year-old children, an essay on women in the economy in Feudal Europe, women in the Chinese patriarchy, and a legend of Hua Mu Lan, the woman warrior. In Unit II students read an essay on women before the industrial revolution, a narrative on child labor in England and Japan, and on the real and ideal middle class woman. Readings in Unit III focus on the revolt of the mother; women in South Africa, China, and Cuba; and a brief history of international women's day. Each unit contains worksheets, illustrations, and charts, questions for discussion, and suggested activities which focus on interviewing people for oral histories. For teacher's guide see SO 013 234.
