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
