Lesson Idea for Women's History Month

Have students practice the power of curation. Using the resources above, have students put together a digital portfolio of a famous woman in history that includes the following:

2 articles about her accomplishments and/or struggles

2 images

1 video

1 biography

Next, have the students write a reflection on the woman and her contribution to history. Last, have the students record or write about how the woman inspires them and why. Upload all resources with links and citations, reflections, and responses to a Google Site and share with the class.

Tech Tip of the Month (Cult of Pedagogy): Insert Learning Google Extension

Turn any webpage into a lesson by highlighting important text, adding commentary, and embedding your own questions, YouTube or webcam videos, ThingLink images, flashcards from Quizlet, and/or mind maps from Coggle. Assign a lesson to your students with a code or through Google Classroom. Student responses save to your dashboard and can even be graded from within the app. You can also share lessons with other teachers, so they can copy and edit them for their own use. Check out the short video below for how to get started.
