Lesson Plan

  • Invite students to visit a variety of online monuments and memorials. Encourage them to take note of aspects of the monuments that relate to the person or event being honored.
  • Arrange students in pairs or small groups. Ask each group to design a monument honoring today's women. Explain that their monuments should be based on what they know -- or can learn -- about women's history and the role of women in today's diverse societies. Tell students that they should be prepared to explain and defend the various aspects of their monuments.

    Assessment

    Evaluate students on how well their monuments reflect women's history and the role of women in society (based on their own explanations).
