Chapter Books in a Jiffy!

Grade Level: 8th Grade

Lesson Time Length: Three 45 minute blocks (or three days) minimum
Big Idea:

Students understand that there were many unknown crusaders like Clarina Nichols that
worked tirelessly for Women’s Rights that have impacted the rights that we enjoy today.
Lesson Abstract:
This lesson is designed to give students an overview of who Clarina Nichols was and
what she is known for. This lesson uses an adaptation from Lucinda Evans, “Book in an
Hour” concept along with internet resources and the book, Revolutionary Heart written
by Diane Eickhoff. Clarina Nichols was an American reformer that traveled across the
country as a newspaper publisher, lecturer and an al y of mistreated women wherever
she went. She was a lesser known crusader for Women’s Rights.
Lesson Background and Context:
The time period that Clarina Nichols crusaded for Women’s Rights was a turbulent time
period during the 19th century. Reading chapter books in class is difficult due to their
length. Through this lesson the twenty chapters in this book can be easily read and
shared with an entire class in just a few class periods or can be expanded by using the
attached Teacher’s Guide. There are a number of primary source resources that can
be found to enrich or use as a springboard for class discussions. In addition, I compiled
a list of resources that wil expand your knowledge of the specific person and book I
have used. The template for the student activity sheet is also attached and can be used
for other chapter books as wel .
