This is a guide for ESL 131B students looking for information and images about noteworthy women born in the United States or abroad, from history or present day.
Using library resources, students will find suggestions for locating encyclopedia articles, books, and images from print and online sources. Students will then put these pictures on a poster with a caption under each picture, then present it to their classmates.
Students will choose photographs of the important women they have chosen and images of their contributions to the world. The woman may be from any field, including:
Once you have chosen your famous woman, gather basic information that answers these questions:
WHO (the name of the woman)
WHAT (What was she most well-know for doing)
WHEN (the historic period in which she lived/lives)
WHERE (the places she worked, the areas of the world she influenced)
WHY/HOW (why she was so important to the world, how she has inspired and influenced people)
Examples of famous American women (alive or from history):
Maxine Hong Kingston
Examples of famous women from other countries (alive or from history):
Aung San Suu Kyi
Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel
Hildegard von Bingen
