“What is a Vote Worth?” Teacher Professional Development
Inquiry + Suffrage
Saturday, May 11, 2019 / 9:00a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
On August 18, 1920, Congress ratified the Nineteenth Amendment granting women the right to vote. As the centennial of this important event approaches the Frazier History Museum is pleased to partner with Jefferson County Public Schools to offer a professional development focused on utilizing the Inquiry Design Model to teach on the topic of Suffrage.
During this engaging, three-hour session teachers will . . .
Use the website www.whatisavoteworth.org to build inquiry lessons aligned to the new Kentucky Academic Standards for Social Studies.
Learn about the alignment of essential elements of inquiry--questions, tasks, and sources as they construct one or more lessons around women’s suffrage and voting rights.
Collaborate to build lessons using major tasks--organization, discussion, argumentative, and informed action that will help students own their learning and utilize what they discover beyond the walls of their classroom.
Share out their tasks and explain how they align to questions and sources.
Learn about a community-wide initiative focused on suffrage and the Frazier Museum’s major exhibition opening in March, 2020 that will celebrate this important centennial and examine Kentucky’s unique role in the fight for women’s suffrage.
