An introduction to the tactics of the suffragists and suffragettes, with source analysis and a GCSE-style question.
Slide 2: give students scrap paper and ask them to draw a terrorist. A stereotype will likely emerge. Explore it, and discuss whether you, as their teacher would have drawn the same thing if asked to complete this task as child
Slides 3 and 4: secret picture with the Shrieking Sister cartoon
Give students Layers of Inference sheet to begin unlocking the cartoon
Slide 5: aims and objectives
Give students detailed history of Suffragists/Suffragettes and get them to cross out the silly words. This will make them read it closely. Add contextual knowledge to Layers of Inference sheet
Slide 6: Complete analysis of cartoon in written paragraph
Slide 7: would they now draw a terrorist differently, given that the suffragettes were certainly seen as terrorists by many in Edwardian Britain, but are unlikely to be viewed as such in the twenty-first century?
