Product Description
In this lesson students will discover the impact that one's actions can have on society. Through teacher notes, a letter, photograph and radio show, students will discover how the relationship between First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt and world known opera singer Marian Anderson changed society. But first students must find that connection by analyzing the images found on the first day covers (envelope containing a commemorative stamp, appropriate postmark and artwork). Eleanor Roosevelt worked tirelessly for the rights of all people and helped lay the foundation for the coming civil rights movement by resigning from the Daughters of the American Revolution when it refused to rent Constitution Hall to Marian Anderson, an African-American. How have other First Ladies brought about changes in society? What is the focus of the present First Lady?
