Lesson Plans for "Not for Ourselves Alone: The Story of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony."
Prososki, Lisa; Krouse, Judith; Harper, Judith E.
These lesson plans for high school students were developed to accompany the documentary film by Ken Burns and Paul Barnes which tells the story of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony and their lifelong fight for women's rights. In the lessons students write editorials about women's rights around the world today, interview senior citizens about how women's roles have changed in the 20th century, investigate women's legal rights over 200 years of U.S. history through primary documents, and explore the connections and conflicts between the suffrage and abolition movements in the United States in the 19th century. Each lesson plan suggests subject areas and an educational objective; lists materials needed; outlines procedural steps; suggests assessment and extension activities; and discusses National Standards. Includes a biography and extensive lists of books and Web sites. Provides organization addresses. (BT)
