Program Details

Format

1) The students will be welcomed to a meeting of The Daughters of Liberty to discuss some of the exemplary women of the 18th century.
2) Characters will guide students in comparing the lives of women in the modern era and the lives of women in the 18th century.
3) Students will explore the lives and experiences of women in the 18th century via primary source documents written by women. They will get the chance to read these words aloud to the entire class and discuss them together.
4) The characters will discuss the lives of women who did not have access to writing and talk about some of the daily tasks that women had in the 18th century.
5) At the end, the characters will ask the students about what they just learned and track the progress of women from the 18th century to modern times.
