Women in the White House. [Lesson Plan].
National Endowment for the Humanities (NFAH), Washington, DC.
In this lesson plan, students in grades 6-8 explore the role and impact of recent First Ladies through research and family interviews, then work in groups to present a documentary portrait to the class. Through these 7 lessons, students will: (1) learn about the political and non-political careers of recent First Ladies; (2) explore the possibilities and limitations of the position of First Lady; and (3) conduct historical research through oral history interviews. Intended for grades 6-8, the plan notes subject areas covered (literature/biography and U.S. history), time required to complete the lesson, skills used and taught in the lesson, and the standards developed by professional associations or governments that are related to the lesson. Activities to extend the lesson conclude the lesson plan. (SR)
