These mini posters (the size is a half sheet per poster) make a PERFECT bulletin board display for Women's History Month. They look great as is or mounted on colorful construction paper. The quotes also work well in an independent writing center, as partner/small group discussion prompts, or as a bell-ringer activity.
PLEASE NOTE: Some of these posters are also included in my Black History Month Posters/Writing Cards
You might also use them as writing cards. Students first analyze the quote of a famous woman. There are so many ways to do this, and I have purposely not provided directions on the reflection sheets so that students can follow the example YOU set for them and include what YOU would like them to include.
A suggested sequence might be:
1. Read the quote provided.
2. Think about the quote. This can be done alone or with a partner in discussion. What does the quote mean? Do you agree or disagree? Why or why not? Is the quote important? Why or why not? Provide students with any questions you would like them to address in their thinking and/or discussion.
3. Write about the quote. Students will now formulate their thoughts or discussion points into a piece of writing about the quote. They will also copy the quote and the speaker on the sheet provided.
4. You might then have students share their written responses aloud with the class.
5. There is also a spot for students to illustrate the person as well. Alternately, they could illustrate the meanings of the quotes instead (for a more abstract challenge).
Students could all work on the same quote or you might provide different students with different quotes.

1. Wilma Rudolph
