Welcome to the Trailblazing Women unit!

Many women have played a huge role in history, persevering despite difficult circumstances. These women have gone on to become inspiring examples. In this unit, we’ll be learning about some women who have changed the world in big and small ways. We’ll learn what they accomplished, how they accomplished it, and how their work has made a difference to the world. How can learning about their experiences help us achieve our own dreams?
In this unit, you will:
  • Learn about women who have influenced the world
  • Read their writing
  • See how we can follow their example
  • Watching videos to help you understand what good readers and writers do
  • Reading and answering questions about literary and informational texts
  • Learning new academic words
In order to answer the essential question: What can we learn from women who broke down barriers?
