Catherine Snyder, World History Commons | Jul 27, 2020

This module helps students explore women in the context of the British Empire. These materials encourage student understanding of the ways in which concepts of racial purity and proper gender roles bounded the social worlds of the British Empire. This site offers an informational essay, objectives, activities, discussion questions, potential adaptations, guidance on engaging with the sources, and essay prompts based on primary sources. The synchronous lesson plan can be adapted for remote teaching, with group discussion held in breakout rooms.
