Women in American History: A Training Module [Grades] 1-6. Equity in Education: The Alaska Project.
Alaska State Dept. of Education, Juneau. Office of Curriculum Services.; Anchorage School District, AK.
This module arose in part from a state law which prohibits sex discrimination in public school education. Its purpose is to increase awareness and knowledge of women's contributions to U.S. history. The module was developed so that elementary school personnel could readily adapt its information for elementary grade students. It reviews lessons plans developed by classroom teachers and encourages that these plans be adapted for use by teachers in their individual classes. The module states seven learning objectives: (1) Participants will become acquainted with each other and with the trainer; (2) Participants will be exposed to six American women who have played important roles in our political process; (3) Participants will try to identify 48 notable Americans by matching a person's name to bibliographic information; (4) Participants will become familiar with the breadth and depth of women's participation in American history; (5) Participants will be given resource material on women in America and interesting events in Women's history; (6) Participants will have an opportunity to view women in history lesson plans, develop their own lesson plans, and share newly written plans; and (7) Participants will be given an opportunity to evaluate the workshop. It is hoped that the module will help correct sexual bias in instructional materials. (RJM)
