Learning Pathway: Influential Women

Building Democracy For All is designed so that teachers and students can follow different learning pathways as they explore the material in the book. Rather than proceeding sequentially through the standards, the learning pathways invite a thematic approach. Other learning pathways include: Black Lives Matter, Student Rights, Election 2020, Media Literacy, and Current Events.
