In the Classroom

Include this site with other resources that feature women role models, topics for biographies, and career exploration information. Although each write-up is relatively short, use the information as a starting point for students to research and find additional information about the career or the featured woman. Consider using a curation tool such as Padlet, reviewed here, as a resource to share information and sources with students. Enhance student learning by sharing organizational tools that make gathering and sharing information easy, such as Workflowy, reviewed here. Workflowy includes tools for adding links, images, and files to one workspace. Add tags, nest information, and lists using drag and drop features, or share and edit information with collaborators. To extend student learning, ask students to use Wakelet, reviewed here, to share their learning. Ask students to include links to research, videos, and online articles along with their work. Search Wakelet to find many examples to use as a guideline for presentations.
