Women's Bibliographic Resource List from the National Archives
The Women’s Bibliographic Resource List from the National Archives is an exceptional place to start to any women’s studies being done in the classroom. I think it is important to show students examples of successful women and inspirational stories of women overcoming obstacles. The Women’s Bibliographic Resource List provides supplemental resources for research various topics like African-American Women, Family and Children, Revolutionary War, Women and Labor, Women and Reform, Women and War, as well as Women and Society. These are all interesting topics for students to research. The Bibliographic list goes along with the Pathfinder Women’s History Research that can also be found in the Archives Library and Information Center. This site would be a great addition to the resources and information that you send out to teachers during Women’s History Month in March. This resource lists relevant books, anthologies, and journals that teachers can use to teach about Women’s History. Many of these topics also come up when teachers are addressing state standards. Third grade learns about Susan B. Anthony and Eleanor Roosevelt. They learn about how these ladies both worked for women’s rights. This year was a favorable year to stop and talk about how women were not always allowed to vote. This website has some useful suggestions for resources to aide teachers during this discussion.
