Are you looking for an inspirational story about strong, brave women in non-traditional roles? Gayle Tzemach Lemmon, a reporter who writes about women around the world living their lives at war and in conflict zones delivered the Ted Talk, "Meet the Women Fighting on the Front Lines of an American War" in 2015.
NO-PREP-- GREAT FOR A SUBSTITUTE LESSON PLAN!
This resources breaks down the transcript of this talk into sections and asks students questions about the women on this special operations mission in Afghanistan.
There are 15 sections each with relevant questions (some with questions within questions) asking students about traditional and non-traditional female roles, society's perceptions of women, the outstanding qualities of the women on the mission, and their own opinions about the women and their success on the battlefield. There is one chart where students are required to list traditional and non-traditional behaviors of the female soldiers.
The resource is attractively formatted and includes a photo of the speaker and another photo of a female soldier.
Clear font and space for student responses.
I also include an MLA citation for the transcript.
The Ted Talk is available on YouTube. The video is 11:26 minutes. I usually show the video, then have students complete the activity independently or with a few classmates.
Thank you for your consideration of this resource.
