Midwife and Contempt of Court

Students research the story about Frieda Miller, her background and the situation that led to her conviction. They explore what it takes to be in contempt of court and what the court has decided. Students investigate midwifery and what its practitioners can and cannot do. Students debate both the court's view and Miller's view.

I love Lesson Planet because it connects me to great websites that have a wealth of information for myself and students. For example, I recently found two great history websites that have a huge amount of pictures--a great place for my foreign language students who need visual aids to comprehend American history. I love Lesson Planet because the lessons are often easy to adapt for a variety of learners.
