Cultural Literacy: Frances Perkins

Moving right along this morning, here is a Cultural Literacy worksheet on Frances Perkins, the first woman to serve in a cabinet position, in Ms. Perkins’ case, as Secretary of Labor in the administration of Franklin D. Roosevelt. This is a full-page document with a reading of four sentences and five comprehension questions.

Did you know she was a witness to the horror of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire? She chaired a committee on public safety after the disaster.

If you find typos in this document, 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.
