Name: Michelle Rochel Grade level: 7/8 Social Studies Class: 7/8 Social Studies Context: Seneca Falls Convention, Women’s Suffrage Description of Plan: Students will learn more of famous women in history. They will study the Declaration of Sentiments and the Seneca Falls Convention as a part of The Era of Reform chapter. Students will create a letter to an important female letting her know how she has affected life today. Standards Addressed: A.8.7,B.8.1, B.8.2, B.8.3, B.8.4, B.8.5, B.8.7, B.8.10, B.8.12, C.8.1,C.8.3,C.8.6, C.8.8, E.8.1,E.8.2, E.8.4, E.8.5, E.8.6, E.8.7, E.8.14 :
While studying the Era of Reform, we would spend some time analyzing the Declaration of Sentiments. I would have the students think how different grievances have or have not been redressed and to what extent. The students would need to support their answer by researching different statistics – ladies in college, income for men and women, etc. They would then create a human spectrum for each grievance and support where there were with an explanation Ladies such as Lucretia Mott, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Sojourner Truth and Katie Mead would be discussed. Questions included would be but not limited to: Who were these ladies? What was their purpose? Were they successful? Why did they want to privilege to vote? Also included in this study would be the Seneca Falls Convention. I would show images of artifacts such as banners, posters, buttons, etc. The images would be shown on the Smart Board. Lesson would continue with students creating a letter back to Elizabeth Cady Stanton or Susan B. Anthony (or any of the other women we studied). The letter would include an update on the progress women have made in America today. Students would refer to the Declaration of Sentiments in their letter. Students will also create a souvenir or momento from the Seneca Falls Convention. Students will work in large group while learning about the Era of Reform. Small group work would take place while analyzing the Declaration of Sentiments and students would work independently on letters and souvenirs.
That man over there say a woman needs to be helped into carriages and lifted over ditches and to have the best place everywhere. Nobody ever helped me into carriages or over mud puddles or gives me a best place... And ain't I a woman? Look at me Look at my arm! I have plowed and planted and gathered into barns and no man could head me... And ain't I a woman? I could work as much and eat as much as a man-- when I could get to it-- and bear the lash as well and ain't I a woman?
I have born 13 children and seen most all sold into slavery and when I cried out a mother's grief none but Jesus heard me... and ain't I a woman? that little man in black there say a woman can't have as much rights as a man cause Christ wasn't a woman Where did your Christ come from? From God and a woman! Man had nothing to do with him! If the first woman God ever made was strong enough to turn the world upside down, all alone together women ought to be able to turn it rightside up again. http://www.womenwriters.net/domesticgoddess/truth.htm http://www.womenwriters.net/domesticgoddess/truth.htm
What was the Declaration of Sentiments? What were some of the grievances women wanted resolved? Who were some of the women involved in the Declaration of Sentiments and the Seneca Falls Convention? He has denied her the facilities for obtaining a thorough education, all colleges being closed against her.
He has taken from her all right in property, even to the wages she earns. He has endeavored, in every way that he could, to destroy her confidence in her own powers, to lessen her self-respect, and to make her willing to lead a dependent and abject life. He closes against her all the avenues to wealth and distinction which he considers most honorable to himself. As a teacher of theology, medicine, or law, she is not known
Susan B. Anthony, Cady Elizabeth Stanton and Sojourner Truth are some women who helped make a difference in the area of women’s rights. Think about what women are able to do today because of what was accomplished in the past. You task is to write a letter to Susan B. Anthony, Cady Elizabeth Stanton or any other famous woman we studied letting them know of the progress that has been made to date. In your letter, please include the following: *** Heading *** Salutation or greeting *** Three areas that have been redressed because of women’s rights movement *** Two areas that still need to be redressed or suggested *** Refer to the Declaration of Sentiments in your letter *** Closing and signature *** Free from spelling and grammatically correct You will also need to create a souvenir from the Seneca Falls Convention. It could be a poster, banner, button, etc. This will be done on a separate piece of paper so it can be displayed around the classroom.
