The American Experience: Eleanor Roosevelt

This PBS companion site to the film biography -- to be broadcast this month -- of America's most famous first lady offers supplemental information and learning resources, including biographical information on Eleanor and Franklin Roosevelt, Theodore Roosevelt, Louis Howe, Marian Anderson, and J. Edgar Hoover; historical background on the Progressive Movement, the battle for suffrage, and the Detroit Race Riots of 1943; and a timeline and maps relating to Roosevelt's life and journeys as first lady and social reformer. The Teacher's Guide provides some discussion-starter questions for use before and after viewing the film, and in this section, users will also find several activities that focus students on different aspects of Roosevelt's life and contributions to history.
