This product contains a series of three short biographies on individuals associated with the women's rights movement in the United States during the 19th century.
The first biography focuses on Susan B. Anthony focuses and her involvement in the temperance movement, her role in founding both women's rights and anti-slavery organizations, and her 1871 trial for attempting to vote.
The second biography focuses on Elizabeth Cady Stanton and her relationship with Susan B. Anthony, her participation in the Seneca Falls Convention of 1848, and her role in writing sections of the Declaration of Sentiments.
The third biography focuses on Lucretia Mott and her involvement in progressive and abolitionist causes, her role at the Seneca Falls Convention in 1848, and her participation in the Free Religious Association of 1867.
Each biography also includes a series of questions based on the reading.
In using this in my own class room, students are encouraged to:
1. Number the paragraphs
2. Read the biography
3. Highlight answers in the reading
4. Use complete sentences.
The answer key demonstrates these steps.
Purchased separately, the biographies would total $6; I am offering them as a bundle for $5.50. I am sure you will find these a valuable addition to your curriculum.
Please do not consider this an end-all for the suffragettes movement. It is my intent to add additional biographies (i.e.: Sojourner Truth and the Grimke sisters) in the near future.
Finally, please feel free to browse the store for other products related to US History, World History, and Government.
