In this progressive era lesson plan, students learn about the horrific “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. It also breaks down women's roles and accomplishments that ultimately led to the suffrage amendment in 1920 and its legacy on America and other social movements.
