Publisher: [n.p.], 2019.
Crafted by Carly Muetterties, a University of Kentucky doctoral candidate in Education at the University of Kentucky, this digital project supports teacher professional development in civics. Designed "to help students, teachers, and the community promote and celebrate the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, ratified in 1920," the site was launched from the Jefferson County Public Schools in partnership with the Frazier History Museum, the League of Women Voters, the Filson Historical Society, the Louisville/Jefferson County Office for Women, and the Kentucky Woman Suffrage Project. There are five main sections for the content offered in the website: Questions, Tasks, Sources, Be a Citizen, and Teach with Inquiry. Each section offers specific instructions for immediate use in the classroom, and users can also find in most sections a "Teacher Guide: Using Questions, Tasks, and Sources" that is based on national, state and local frameworks for social studies teaching and learning. There are many different kinds of resources for educators to use, including images and primary sources - and users can filter the resources by many different Topics and Themes.
