Product Description
Frances E. Willard was a Gilded Age reformer who focused primarily on temperance but then realized that suffrage would give women more power to abolish liquor. This lesson combines a first day cover (envelope with commemorative stamp, appropriate postmark and artwork) which honors her work, with an excerpt from her autobiography describing her first temperance activity.
Students will analyze vocabulary on the first day cover and discuss how it might define her life's mission. After reading the excerpt students will understand and then discuss how one event can change a person's life. Is temperance practiced today? Does the Women's Christian Temperance Union still exist? Have any of the students experience such a life focusing event?
