This close read is a great way for students to start celebrating National Women's History Month in March! After reading a two page selection about women's fight to gain the vote in America, students will complete close read questions and a writing assignment. These include: finding key ideas and details, craft and structure, vocabulary, integration of knowledge and ideas, and a writing task. Students are asked to cite evidence to support their answers. This assignment could be modified to make it appropriate for other grade levels, although it is designed for grades four through six.
*This assignment has been updated to include both color and black and white versions of each page for teacher choice.
