About This Lesson

This lesson plan explores the women's rights movement during the 1860s, 1870s, and 1880s. Students will read an introductory overview article about the women's rights movement through the push for the 19th Amendment and will watch an introductory video clip about how women's roles changed during the Civil War. After defining and researching key vocabulary terms, phrases, and people, students will engage in a choice board activity focused on eight different topics relevant to the women's rights movement of the time. The lesson concludes with a closure prompt and offers two extension activities.
