Teaching Women's History Through Literature: Standards-Based Lesson Plans K-12, NCSS Bulletin 107
Women used to be almost invisible in history books used in school, and although they now have a stronger presence in textbooks, teachers often have difficulty finding the right additional resources for teaching womens history. Kay A. Chicks publication fills an important gap by identifying appealing literature that will engage students in the study of womens history. Biographies and historical fiction are the principal genres of literature selected. The author pays special attention to choosing developmentally appropriate books and lesson plans that can advance standards-based teaching at the primary, intermediate, middle school and high school grade levels.
