This Web Activity goes with the Opinion & Analysis lesson in our News Literacy unit. It is not designed to be used alone. The activity is designed to give students hands-on practice and a deeper understanding of the concepts in the lesson.
Each slide includes a link and a set of questions. Use the companion worksheet in the Opinion & Analysis lesson materials to give students a place to note their answers. (They can write them in the answer space on each slide, too, but there isn’t an easy way for you to download or compile those answers in My iCivics.)
How did women win the right to vote? What civic actions were taken to gain political equality? In this WebQuest, students will learn about four civic tactics that supporters of women's suffrage took to move the nation to ratify the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote.
