Women Vote 100 Celebration
Teacher Professional Development

Thursday, March 7, 2019 | 5PM-8PM

On August 18, 1920, Congress ratified the Nineteenth Amendment granting women the right to vote. The Frazier History Museum is pleased to partner with the Louisville Office For Women, League of Women Voters of Louisville, and over 100 partner organizations to launch a major community celebration.

Local educators are invited to join us for a unique opportunity, co-presented by Jefferson County Public Schools, to discover the components of the celebration that will support student learning on this important topic.

During this engaging professional development teachers will:

  • Hear remarks from Dr. Marty Pollio, JCPS Superintendent, and Carmen Moreno-Rivera, Interim Chief of Performance Improvement from the Mayor’s Office. 

  • Discover a major curriculum resource developed by Jefferson County Public Schools in the form of a website titled What is a Vote Worth?  (Curriculum will be available for public use by all interested school districts).

  • Receive instructional training for utilizing the website directly from its creators, including Ryan New, JCPS Social Studies Instructional Lead.

  • Learn inquiry based practices for utilizing the What is a Vote Worth resource through a series of breakout sessions, with an emphasis on written and verbal argumentation and taking informed action. 

  • Hear an overview of the full Louisville suffrage effort supported by over 100 local organizations and learn about the Frazier Museum’s major exhibition opening in March, 2020 that will celebrate this important centennial and examine Kentucky’s unique role in the fight for women’s suffrage.
