Women's History Month is celebrated in March. Harriet Beecher Stowe is the perfect subject for Black History month and Women's History month or anytime as a resource to learn about an influential figure in American history and improve reading comprehension. This freebie provides a short story/bio and scaffolding to help your students gain a better understanding of text.

This Harriet Beecher Stowe resource is part of a NEW series of historical figures entitled "Heroes, Idols, Patriots and the Infamous." Every resource in the series has a short story/bio with scaffolding and activities to complement it. The goals of this series are to introduce historical figures to students and to improve reading comprehension skills. These are print and go resources.

I am offering this resource as a freebie to give you a "taste" of how the series is organized although the freebie is limited to only 10 pages to comply with TpT requirements for freebies. Other resources in the series are much longer.

If you do download this resource, please leave some feedback to let me know what you think as I am beginning to work on my next character and your comments are very helpful. Enjoy!

This is a print-and-go resource.

Other resources in the series are:
Celebrate Black History, Read Harriet Tubman
Nat Turner, Leader of the Greatest Slave Revolt in American History
Sarah Josepha Hale, The Godmother of Thanksgiving
Sonia Sotomayor, Supreme Court Justice


Customer Tips:
Save $$$.
Did you know that Teachers Pay Teachers gives TpT credits, saving $$$ on future purchases, when you purchase a product and leave feedback?
You get one TpT Credit for every $ you spend on TpT--but only when you leave a fair rating and a comment. TpT rounds up for you, too! If you provide fair feedback on a $4.75 item, you will earn 5 credits. Every 100 credits is worth $5 that you can apply towards future TpT purchases, but there is no need to wait until you have 100 to redeem them. 50 credits is worth $2.50, for example. It’s a great deal and a great way to save $$$. It’s a win, win. You save money and I get feedback to help me determine which products are most valuable for your classroom. Then I can create more of what you need.

How to get TPT credit to use on your future purchases:
• Please go to your My Purchases page (you may need to login). Beside each purchase you'll see a Provide Feedback button. Simply click it and you will be taken to a page where you can give a quick rating and leave a short comment for the product. TpT will issue you credit and keep track of the credits you earn.

• Look for the green star next to my store logo and click it to become a follower. You will be the first to know about my product discounts, new product launches and freebies.
