Women's History Month in the Gifted Classroom

Although Women’s History Month is swiftly coming to a close, there’s still time to utilize some great online resources to integrate women’s history into gifted classrooms. These lessons and activities are great for tracing the evolution of women’s place in society, celebrating their intellectual and cultural impact, and prompting students to think deeply about equality and civil rights. 

Over on the Women’s History Month website is a collection of lesson plans, activities, and links to other resources to help integrate women’s history into classrooms. The site also has some audio and visual presentations, Webcasts, and musical recordings that will add some variety and color to women’s history lessons. The Library of Congress has some fascinating features on Westward-bound female pioneers and the suffragette movement, containing first-person narratives and field recordings of Dust Bowl folk music. And check out the collection of women’s history photographs from the U.S. National Archives on Flickr. 

Don’t forget to take a look at our upcoming book, The Girl Guide: Finding Your Place in a Mixed-Up World, a fun and useful guide to help young girls navigate the tough world of adolescence and find individual forms of empowerment.
