How many Americans can describe the timeline for women’s rights in America? When did women win the right to vote after decades of struggling? The answers led Analytic Orange, a new social studies publishing company, to provide lessons from its recently published textbook at no charge to teachers and parents nationwide. The complementary resources parents and teachers will receive:
• Gender Pay Gap infographic
• 16th, 17th, 18th, and 19th Amendment infographics and the Progressive Era Timeline
infographic, detailed lesson plans, and a PowerPoint presentation with audio
• Six-page timeline of Women’s Rights with primary sources (photos, images, and
documents along with embedded mini activities) and our Annotating Text Reading with Purpose anchor chart (close reading)

Parents and teachers typically do not have access to complete, accurate, vetted, up-to-date, standards-based lessons on women’s history to use in their classrooms and at home with students and children. Modern textbooks are purchased so infrequently; they simply don’t keep up with many new, relevant facts or our society’s rapidly changing appreciation of women’s accomplishments and what students should be taught.
“We believe students will take a deeper interest in history, and school in general, if they are inspired by the amazing accomplishments of women throughout American history,” says AO founder and CEO Dr. Kim Mogilevsky. “We recognize that parents and teachers are in desperate need of fresh, authentic lessons to use with students, especially this month. “When I was a teacher, I would have loved the lessons we’re producing now. We didn’t have them. I know many teachers are hungry for compelling, primary-source materials and relevant lesson plans,” she says.
AO textbooks, teacher editions, and support materials will be available soon nationwide for kindergarten through fifth-grade students. All materials will be conveniently available through the AO website. “Because we’ve written these materials for schools nationwide, we felt that making some of them available now to parents and teachers at home, online, and in classrooms during COVID-19 would be of great value,” says Dr. Mogilevsky. “And, given the national attention on diversity in America, it is vital we share this inclusive curriculum at this opportune time–now.”
Parents and teachers interested in lesson plan materials for Women’s History Month may request them by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Analytic Orange provides comprehensive, multi-perspective, and inclusive social studies textbooks and curriculum materials, including hands-on projects and community engagement while focusing on critical thinking and problem-solving.
“As veteran teachers, we are talking to teachers and educators across the country every day, so we know the desperate need for new material to engage and inspire more students and also help boost student knowledge and achievement,” says Dr. Mogilevsky.
The company says, “Our goal is for all students to see themselves reflected in Analytic Orange’s materials as leaders, role models, and innovators. All students benefit from learning about historical events from the diverse points-of-view of the people who experienced history.”
