Woman Suffrage and the 19th Amendment

This lesson plan from provides educators with content and instruction tips to introduce high school students to the the woman suffrage movement that resulted in the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution. The lesson draws from nine disparate but related primary source documents that date between 1868 and 1920, as well as six teaching activities that run the gamut from document analysis to role play to student research. There is even a well-structured activity in which students are invited to write and stage a one-act play in order to dramatize, and help understand, original source material. Related websites are also available here, including excellent resources from the Library of Congress, the National Archive, the National Park Service, the National Register of Historic Places, and the National Women's History Project. Readers will also find related lesson plans, such as "On Gendering the Constitution" and "Woman's Legal History Biography Project," on the left hand side of the page.
