REVIEW:
The National Women's History Project (NWHP) is a nonprofit organization set up to promote the role of women in history. The organization provides education materials and information to interested parties. It includes updates about "events, conferences, publications, films, and other resources related to U.S. women's history." Each March is National Women's History Month and the Web site has lists of links pertaining to that event. Users can acquire posters, videos, books, and other materials without charge. Viewers will find information on membership, teacher-training workshops, and conferences for teachers. Users can take an online quiz about some historically prominent women. The site also has a research library with resources about U.S. women's history. This is a great site for the upcoming National Women's History Month but can also be utilized year-round for history lesson plans.
