EXAMPLE OF AN ACTIVITY• Activity 1: Reading “My Day” • Hand out the guiding questions sheet for the “My Day” articles.• Hand out the June 7, 1944 “My Day” article. Read the excerpt about women and math out loud.• Facilitate a brief discussion about the theme(s) addressed in the excerpt, student reaction to Mrs. Roosevelts opinion, and speculation about what the response of her readers might have been at the time. Use the guiding questions in the teacher’s guide to assist you in leading the discussion.• Separate the class into pairs. There are 16 “My Day” articles that have been preselected.• Assign one article per pair. Instruct the students to read the article and answer the questions from the guiding questions sheet.• After completing the activity, ask the students to share their responses to the article with the class.
Student Worksheet II: to be used with “My Day” columns and other writings Eleanor Roosevelt in Words, Deeds, and Pictures Directions: Use the “My Day” column, article, and/or photo you’ve chosen to answer the following questions. Why did you choose the article you did? What specifically is Mrs. Roosevelt doing in your article or photo? What issue does that address? Do you agree that the issue is important? Why or why not? Do you think the issue is still important today? Why or why not? Have things changed or improved on this particular issue since Mrs. Roosevelt wrote her column? How? (If they haven’t, explain why you think so.) How should this issue be addressed today?
