Women in World History/ Primary sources

Earlier in the year, I wrote about a primary sources program at Stanford University with complete lesson plans.  George Mason University has a similar program called "Women in World History."  If you click on "modules," you come to a menu of different modules. If you click on one, like the Islamic Empire, you'll get primary sources and teaching strategies   You can download the sources and strategies into a word document. Both are very good and usable.

All of the sources and modules here have to do with women.  The module above looks at the impact of women in growth of the Islamic Empire.  Another module deals with the early Hindu practice of Sati and another concentrates on Bhakti poets.
