Students choose a notable woman in Texas History from 1500-1945 and complete an extensive academic research project. There are 15 requirements, including having the students draw conclusions on how Texas History might have turned out differently if not for the woman they chose, a thorough overview of the time period she lived in, a brief timeline, maps, images, a works cited page, and more!
This can easily be adapted to include men, if you would like a list of options for students to choose from you can email me at email@example.com.
This includes a few suggestions of the format their project can take, a sample list of 48 women to choose from, and a points distribution totaling 200 points.
