my dd's report after an hour in front of the computer....

Recommended Posts

The internet is an overwhelming source of true and not-so-true information.


Have you done some time on research methods?


How to find resources?

How to evaluate the resources to see if they are true, unbiased, and up-to-date?

How to take notes and cite sources?

How to know when to stop looking for information?


And if she has problems with organizing or feeling too overwhelmed by making something out of all that information, have you looked at graphic organizers to help her arrange her thoughts?

Susan B. Anthony





Born into a Quaker family, Susan B. Anthony was a woman who stood up for what she believed in. She fought for women’s rights and the abolition of slavery.

She found that women especially needed the right to vote because women’s interests were not being protected. For example, before her main goal was to give women the right to vote, she protested against drunkenness. Politicians did not take her seriously because she was a woman and therefore classified it as a ‘women’s issue’. This is one of the reasons Susan B. Anthony thought it was of great importance that women be given the right to vote.

She also believed that African-American men and women were equal to white men and women. So, in 1856, she joined the American Anti-Slavery Society.

After the civil War ended, she refused to support African-American voting rights unless black women were included.

When she died in 1906, over her lifetime she had campaigned for African-American voting rights, Women’s voting rights, and the abolition of slavery, as well as illegally casting a vote in 1872.

She didn’t live to see her hard work for women’s voting rights pay off in 1920, but she did lead the way for other suffragists to start where she left off.

In 1979, The U.S. Mint, in honor of Susan B. Anthony, designed a coin with her picture engraved on the front.
