Women's History through Quilting. A Social Studies/Service Learning Teaching Unit for Middle and High School Grades.
Lea, Tricia J.
This curriculum unit is part of a larger unit on women's history that allows students to explore the many ways that history has been recorded, including quilting. The unit teaches students how women used quilts as their pens to record issues of their time. Students then connect this to their own lives by expressing contemporary issues through a quilt square. The unit continues with students volunteering to sew quilt squares together to provide a community quilt that is then donated to a community center for display. Students also are encouraged to provide a special housewarming gift for a woman moving from a shelter to her own home. The unit contains an overview and rationale, a content section, a list of objectives, lesson plans, and a section on the evaluation of the quilting project. (BT)
