Website Spotlight: Women in the Progessive Era


Website URL: http://www.nwhm.org/online-exhibits/progressiveera/home.html

Introductory Note:

Welcome to one in a series of posts which spotlight quality websites that I use with my U.S. History survey course students at Azusa Pacific University to enrich the regular material in our learning modules.

In this post, I limit myself to those specific aspects of the website which I find fit particularly well within our face-to-face class sessions (each student is required to bring a laptop to class) or as the basis for the students' regularly-assigned written reactions.

++++++++++

I ask my students to work their way through each of these brief essays presented by the National Women's History Museum.

Introduction to Women in the Progressive Era
The Status of Women
Introduction to Clubwomen
The General Federation of Women's Clubs (GFWC)
Causes: The Woman's Christian Temperance Union
Causes: The Woman Suffrage Movement
Causes: The Birth Control Movement
Settlement House Women
Hull House
The Children's Bureau
The National Consumers League
African American Women During the Progressive Era
African American Women Reform Efforts
Racial Divisions in the Progressive Era
Working Women: The Women's Trade Union League
Women and the Peace Movement
Women in World War I
Legacy of Women in the Progressive Era
