Sample of two Bookmark Bios! Eleanor Roosevelt and Dorothea Dix
Recently, while watching the morning news, two of the hosts couldn’t name the famous woman, from Rochester, NY, who helped women get the right to vote! One said, I think her name was Susan “something”. That got me thinking that Bookmark Bios might be a great way to introduce young people to many(not all) the famous women and men in history, STEM and Literature!
Giving the Bookmark Bios, could be a weekly thing, perhaps as a handout for an interactive notebook, after a testing period, or as a “bell ringer” before your class instruction begins. You could print the Bookmark Bios on cardstock or colored paper, cut them out and you might consider laminating them for a more durable handout. The first resource of 20 Women in Modern Times(1700s on) also comes with a Bookmark Bio card of 5 questions to encourage critical thinking. Bookmark Bios! Click here for complete resource:
