March is Women's History Month

To support your observance of Women's History Month in the classroom, here's a short list of resources that highlight the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society.

  • The Library of Congress has centralized a wealth of resources and lesson plans for teaching women's history in the classroom. Find them here:
  • Meanwhile, on ArtsConnectEd, an educator published this Art Collector Set featuring depictions of women from the 17th century to the present day: "Portraits of Women Through the Ages". The images in this Set could be used to support a journaling exercize in which students speculate about the lives of the individual women portrayed in the artworks.
  • For older audiences (grades 11, 12, and college students), "Women and Feminism within the Arts since 1945" is a resource that familiarizes students with a variety of contemporary women artists and feminist issues within contemporary art. The Set is annotated with helpful information and discussion questions.
