Women Writers and Dissent in 20th and 21st Century American Literature

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

Tenth graders read examples of writings by women authors showing their dissent. After completion of their reading, they brainstorm on why they believe female authors have criticized society. In groups, they use the Internet to research the historical events occurring in the writings. To end the instructional activity, they write about a strong woman in their own lives and perform in a skit using one of the readings.
