Eisenberg, Bonnie; Ruthsdotter, Mary
This collection of teaching units, developed by the National Women's History Project, includes biographies of women who have made significant contributions in each of 12 different language arts areas. The topics covered include poets, nonfiction writers, fiction writers, and doing research on women writers. Each unit gives a brief biography of the writer, a list of classroom activities, discussion topics, and assignments. These units also may be used as a starting point for the discussion of traditional women's roles and how attitudes and sex roles have changed. (NL)
