  • This is great for Hispanic Heritage Month and Women's History Month. I love that I can expose students to this material in the target language.

  • Thank you for sharing! Great to see new faces. The students enjoyed learning information about these women that they had not known about before.

  • Biographies are such an easy way for me to connect to other subjects, and at an expeditionary school that's so important! These are great women and great bios!

  • I have been determined to represent many people in my lessons of varying occupations, abilities, origins, etc and this resource has it all. My students love biographies and having so many at my fingertips has been truly wonderful. I've learned so much with this resource as well! I also try to add a related activity for my students to do with each biography we read.

  • I am always looking to add more reading activities, and this was/is a perfect resource - especially since I teach at an all-girls school.
