Women have made vital but often little-known contributions to American history. These lesson plans and videos are based on History Detectives episodes that examine artifacts which provide clues to how women have been integral in the visual arts, in fighting political causes and on battlefields. They offer students opportunities to hold a history-based political convention, create visual arts designs, and do biographical research.
In this lesson plan, students study images of women in movies and television, contrasting the ideal of physical beauty with the risks an actress takes to be funny.
