All our videos teach through the power of story to make history relevant and interesting for students. In this lesson, students learn about the “Night of Terror” and how the National Women’s Party and other suffrage groups led the fight for the passage of the 19th Amendment. It tells the amazing story of how Alice Paul and the Silent Sentinels were arrested and then beaten horrifically during the "Night of Terror" and how that turned the tide on the passage of the 19th Amendment. The video also interweaves essential history learning standards like the causes and timeline of the suffrage movement from the Seneca Falls Convention to the Progressive Era in a lesson students won't forget! ✅ The lessons cover state-standards while making sure the content is still interesting.
