In anticipation of the forthcoming Equality’s Call, a picture book about the history of U.S. voting rights (written by me; illustrated by Magdalena Mora; Beach Lane Books 2020), I am starting to compile resources that students (and adults) of all ages can use to learn more about our right to vote. This page will develop over the coming months, but my plan is to include some or all of the following:
- A list of voting rights activists (those listed in the book as well as additional activists)
- A bibliography of books for further reading
- Resources to use in the classroom
To get started, I have a couple of handouts that can be used in the classroom. Feel free to download or to use as a starting point for developing your own resources.
- Handout: How will you answer equality’s call? [preK to mid-el.]
- Handout: Who’s your voting rights hero? [preK to mid-el.]
- Handout: [Draft] Learn about voting participation in your community [mid/upper-el. to h.s.]
I welcome your suggestions and input about this page. Thank you for standing up for our right to vote!
