How nice is that?! One day just for us, ladies! 😀 Oh well, I sometimes wish there were many Women’s Days and maybe a Men’s Day too. But I’m happy to share exceptional women’s stories with my students.
Thursday March 8th
On Thursday, unfortunately, only my 3e will have a special lesson about Women (and that will launch our lesson on Ruby Bridges). I’ll have a « history of arts » lesson in centers. My class will be divided into 3 main groups (about 10 students in each) and given a document related to Rosie the Riveter : Rockwell’s painting, the « We can do it » campaign and a modern Rosie created by Abigail Gray Swartz.
My objective is to have my students describe and analyze these posters (just a few days before their mock exam) about the role of women during World War Two. At the end of the class, they’ll be given a copy of this document to present a biography of their choice.
