Teaching Women’s Suffrage

On March 17, 2020, Teaching with Primary Sources – MTSU will offer a special workshop on “Teaching Women’s Suffrage” in conjunction with the “Road to Suffrage” symposium. The workshop will explore how the early suffrage movement drew connections to the nation’s founding documents, the strategies and tactics used by the National Woman’s Party, and Tennessee’s role in ratifying the Nineteenth Amendment. All activities and resources will align with Tennessee curriculum standards. The workshop is open to all educators, school librarians, and MTSU students. The workshop will take place in the MTSU Student Union Building beginning at 9 a.m. and will conclude with the public symposium. To register, please e-mail Kira Duke.
