Explore the value of a vote when living in a democracy.
The compelling question was originally conceived as a means to explore the women’s rights movement, particularly the suffragists’ fight for voting rights. Guided by our eight Key Concepts, the resources have expanded to have students explore the value of a vote when living in a democracy, assessing how individuals and groups fought for, and have defended, the franchise, thereby communicating its value through their sacrifices.
What is a Vote Worth? is a collaborative project of the Frazier History Museum, Jefferson County Public Schools, and other Louisville, Kentucky organizations.
The What is a Vote Worth? collection features inquiries, inspired by the C3 Framework and created using the Inquiry Design Model. Each inquiry includes a blueprint, overview of the lesson along with all the sources needed to implement in the classroom.
