Some of the choices made by the women featured in this session were well-planned, others were spontaneous. However, all these decisions defined who they were and their historical influence. Would their life stories have been different if they had completed a cost and benefit analysis or filled out a PACED decision-making grid? This session includes classroom ready lessons, enrichment activities, supporting material resources, and a topical bibliography. The titles featured are “Long-Armed Ludy and the First Women’s Olympics” by Jean Patrick, “Sisters and Champions: The True Story of Venus and Serena Williams” by Howard Brant, “May Lin: Artist-Architect of Light and Lines” by Jeanne Walker, “RESPECT: Aretha Franklin, Queen of Soul” by Carole Boston Weatherford, “Dolores Huerta: A Hero to Migrant Workers” by Sarah Warren, and “Rosa” by Nikki Giovanni.
