The Weekly Text, March 1, 2019, Women’s History Month 2019 Week I: A Reading and Comprehension Worksheet on Journalist Ida B. Wells

Today begins Women’s History Month 2019. That means every blog post on Mark’s Text Terminal during the month of March will be related in some way to the contributions of women to the world.

This reading on Ida B. Wells, the legendary journalist and anti-lynching activist, and its accompanying vocabulary-building and comprehension worksheet serve as a nice link between Black History Month and Women’s History Month. Here, also, is flexible ancillary worksheet that I’ve just begun to write for these readings. I’m not sure where exactly (or even approximately, for that matter) I want to take these worksheets, but the basic idea is to move students along by asking them deeper, more inferential and analytical questions.

If you find typos in these documents, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
