A PRETTY FACE
important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes! "
CLASS AS WE EXPLORE INSPIRING FEMALE ROLE MODELS
girls from classrooms across the world as they learn about women
from the past and present who have impacted our world. Who knows,
perhaps your findings will inspire you to unleash the same perseverance and strength of spirit
these women have to make changes
in your own world.
this project you have been hired by She-roes, an organization that
profiles strong women role models, to create a new
line of dolls that will celebrate strong female role models of the
twentieth century from all over the world. Your job is to chose a strong
female who has made a significant positive impact on your
world, develop a concept for the doll, and
then chose two activities that will profile your doll.
JOIN OUR CLASS!
Not Just a Pretty Face is a telecollaborative project that
will join middle school girls from around the globe in a
collaborative learning venture that will help these students learn about
women who have made a significant mark in history. From January 1st
- December 31, 2005, participating classrooms will work on the
project activities and then share their work by posting it on the
project web site.
Not Just a Pretty Face will engage students in purposeful activities that will hone their research and writing
skills, their ability to transfer information into a
creative/artistic medium, and their ability to articulate how their
learning about strong female role models can be applied to their own
lives. Students will have the opportunity to work with classrooms
from across the world and to enter into a thought-provoking dialogue
about how women can use their abilities and vision to make a
difference in their world. Those interested in joining She's
Not Just a Pretty Face should contact project
coordinator, Brenda Dyck .
