How To Celebrate National Women's History Month.
Intended for teachers, this guide is designed as an aid to mark Women's History Month with special thought and activity, and to offer suggestions for further information and resources. Noting that "history doesn't only happen to men," the document stresses that "history is made at home, in the community, in the factories, offices, and fields of America." Every subject and every level of education can use the addition of the lost heritage of women as evidenced by books, letters, diaries, speeches, oral histories, poems, handicrafts, paintings, musical compositions, and other productions of women. The guide suggests what state federations of teachers can do, what American Federation of Teachers (AFT) locals can do, and what the community and school districts can do to commemorate the month of March as National Women's History Month. The document offers several lists of information sources and includes separate information sheets on the suffrage movement, how AFT celebrates Women's History Month, and suggested class activities celebrating the month.
