Engage your students in exploring one of the most critical debates of the 1970s: the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment. Through cooperative analysis of four primary sources from both the Women's Liberation Movement as well as the New Right Movement, students will identify argument given from both sides as to whether or not the ERA should be ratified.
Product includes a teacher lesson plan, four excerpted primary sources (including line numbers for citation purposes), an argument data retrieval chart, and an exit ticket activity, which asks students to compose a letter to a state representative either supporting or opposing ratification. A rubric is provided for grading of the exit ticket. Lesson plan includes correlation to appropriate Common Core standards.
