Women’s Suffrage

This inquiry leads students through an investigation of voting rights in America.  By investigating the compelling question “Was the vote enough?” students evaluate both sides of the early twentieth century quest to expand suffrage to women.  The formative performance tasks build on knowledge and skills through the course of the inquiry and help students determine if getting the vote was enough to give women full social and political equality.   Students create an evidence-based argument about whether or not the vote is enough.
