It is often said that history is written by the victors, which have traditionally been male. It should be no surprise then that the way we teach and talk about history is often biased against the women who helped make it. Recent scholarship, however, has helped in combating this bias by “discovering” numerous examples of nearly-forgotten women who helped changed the world. In this course, participants will learn to research and develop a meaningful understanding of the many women who are often left out of ancient history courses. This course will help students create enlightening activities, lessons, and research projects that will be directly transferable into their Social Studies classrooms. Additionally, participants will learn why these important figures were purposefully left out of history books, helping them develop a deeper understanding of historical bias. Participation in this course will help educators refine their understanding of the ancient world, for their personal and professional growth.
