Students learn about women's roles and treatment in Ancient India in this complete Common Core aligned lesson plan. They take brief notes on historical context and analyze a primary source excerpt from the ancient text the "Laws of Manu." Then they read short passages to learn about arranged marriages, the dowry system, women's roles in Hinduism, and the practices of sati and female infanticide and synthesize information in a graphic organizer. The lesson finishes with a fun, structured debate activity. Complete answer key included!
