7-10_1 Women's Suffrage and the Progressive Era
Welcome to the Wiki page for Eras 7-10, Part 1!
The Mini-institute on this topic, Women's Suffrage and the Progressive Era," was held on September 25, 2012. The purpose of this wiki page is to allow those who attended the opportunity to pool resources and ideas gleaned from that institute. Feel free to post lesson plans, project ideas, or other ways that you have integrated the material or methods learned at this day's sessions into your classroom. What worked, or did not work? What materials have you discovered were most helpful? Or least helpful? What material (photos, documents, videos, etc) do you wish you had more of? And who has found some to recommend?
If you have never used a wiki before, do not worry. Many have not! Just click on the icon above that says "EDIT" to begin adding your contributions to this project. Do not forget that creating a classroom project based on these institutes, and being observed during the project, can all count towards the completion of your Professional Development Plan (PDP).
