PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this 14 page activity, your students will research the woman’s suffrage movement 1848-1920, using the provided secondary/primary source documents. They will use their understanding of the documents to participate in a “Socratic Seminar” (classroom debate) in which they defend their side of the debate in support or against suffrage for women. Your students will:
1) Be assigned a role in order to prepare for the Socratic Seminar (Supporter of suffrage/Opponent of suffrage). Student’s will either support or oppose women’s suffrage in this activity from the perspective of an American living in the late 1800’s-early 1900’s.
