This unit is structured into three interwoven categories: I. The lives of Euro-American women, II. The lives of African American women, III. The times as seen through the eyes of the female child. At the center of each group, the limelight will be on a limited number of documented lives which parallel the uncounted experiences of many. An educator facilitating this unit will be equipped with opportunities in each section for widening personal perspectives, as well as expanding the hearts and minds of his or her students. This unit provides an integrated approach to learning history by providing opportunities to expand the students’ skills in reading, writing, social studies, and math. The children will be engaged in reading while integrating history with the other objectives designated by the Curriculum Frameworks of the New Haven Public Schools.
(Recommended for Writing, History, Social Studies, Women’s Studies, and Reading, grades 3-8)
