The simply delightful Teaching with Historic Places initiative uses properties listed in the National Park Service's National Register of Historic Places to enliven history, social studies, geography, civics, and other subjects. Over the past decade or so, the initiative has crafted rather fine guides to Indianapolis, maritime Massachusetts, and dozens of other places. This website brings together all of the lesson plans that address important aspects of women's history. The plans here profile people like Adeline Hornbek, who as a single mother of four, defied traditional gender roles to become the owner of a successful ranch under the Homestead Act. Another great lesson plan here profiles the Robbins Reed Lighthouse, which was maintained by Kate Walker from 1894 to 1919. Lessons contain a wealth of background information, activities, pictures, and primary sources.
