In this class, students will learn about 10 women who excelled in their fields during periods of history when men typically dominated these fields.

Their stories inspire young learners to keep working toward their goals, even in the face of opposition or challenging circumstances. I feel it's especially important for young girls to have role models such as the women we'll be learning about...
Students will present projects during the final week of this class. These projects will be based on a person we studied in this class. Students are able to choose both the person and the type of project they want to do. Further details are given in the Class Description.
Depending on the project chosen by the student, one or more of the following may be needed: computer with printer, pen/pencil, paper, paint, crayons, other creative art supplies
Learning will be assessed through class discussion and participation and also through the students' projects.
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
