Abstract

The authors present three lesson ideas that integrate women's history into the curriculum and that support the development of important social studies skills. The first lesson, for teachers to use at the beginning of the school year, encourages students to think critically about the nature of history and the importance of understanding the point of view of those portrayed in the historical narrative and that of the historian. The second lesson engages diverse students in hands-on activities to demonstrate their knowledge of women's roles in the Jamestown colony. The third lesson requires students to analyze a primary source and write from a particular point of view as they compare and contrast the lives of Northern and Southern women during the Civil War.
