Making Herstory

Women in History is a half-year elective that focuses on many of the women who helped shape American history. Students move from Colonial times to the Women’s Rights movement and beyond, taking note of Abigail Adams, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, Clara Barton, Annie Oakley, and Queen Liliuokalani, just to name a few. This year’s class visited the Women's Rights National Historical Park, the Wesleyan Chapel (site of the first Woman's Rights Convention), and the Women’s Hall of Fame in Syracuse to expand their learning. While on the field trip, students put together a "selfie" visual presentation of the various women they saw on the trip and presented them to the class. These students enjoyed the chance to see strong women not just making history, but making herstory.
