Register for "Women in American History"

October 14, 2023, 8:30 AM PT - 2:15 PM PT | Hosted by: Fischer Hall 613 S. Main St. Frankenmuth, Michigan | DISCUSSION LEADER: DR. MELISSA MATTHES

Women’s political, social and economic status has undergone several transformations in American history. This seminar will explore readings and documents in three of those stages: Women of Reform and Revolution,
Women in the Progressive Era and Voting Booths and Is Suffrage Enough – the Lasting Impact.

This program will be conducted as a Socratic discussion, utilizing primary source documents as the only readings, and with the Discussion Leader facilitating the conversation, instead of lecturing or presenting. Registrants, therefore, are highly encouraged to read all the documents in advance and come ready with questions. All attendees will receive a Letter of Attendance at the end of the seminar.


Teaching American History
"It gave me a better understanding of the Founders’ views. They saw that restricting religious liberty is not only wrong; it leads to animosity within society. This year, I will begin both my government class and my class on “Law and Modern Society” with George Washington’s Letter to the Hebrew Congregation at Newport." — Sean B.
