Celebrate Women's History Month with Newsela

Celebrate Women's History Month with Newsela

This Women’s History Month, support your instruction with Newsela Text Sets curated for every grade level.

For elementary students, we’ve curated a Text Set called “She Did It First.” The Text Set highlights women who brought about change, featuring trailblazers like Bessie Coleman, Jen Welter, and Sonia Sotomayor. Use it to show your students how women throughout history beat the odds to achieve their goals.

Middle school students can begin to unpack gender stereotypes with the Beyond Pink and Blue: Studying Gender Stereotypes Text Set. They’ll also learn about media literacy and resisting gender stereotypes - all while reading at a level that’s just right for them.

Finally, high school students can continue the conversation on harassment with the “#MeToo Movement” Text Set, which explains how and why the hashtag exploded across headlines and social media posts. They can also explore the origins of the #MeToo movement, and how they can take action to support survivors and end abuse.

No matter which theme best suits your students, you’ll find Newsela articles that bring women’s history to life. Join the conversation all month using the hashtag #WomensHistoryOnNewsela and share how you’re celebrating Women’s History Month in your classroom.
