We know that the Common Core State Standards are encouraging you to reevaluate the books that you assign to your students. To help you decide which books are right for your classroom, each ebook in this series contains a Common Core–aligned teaching guide and a sample chapter.
This teaching guide for Founding Mothers by Cokie Roberts is designed to help you put the new Common Core State Standards into practice.
"Instructive and inspiring."—New York Times Book Review
Drawing upon personal correspondence, private journals, and even favored recipes, Roberts reveals the often surprising stories of these fascinating women, bringing to life the everyday trials and extraordinary triumphs of individuals like Abigail Adams, Mercy Otis Warren, Deborah Read Franklin, Eliza Pinckney, Catherine Littlefield Green, Esther DeBerdt Reed, and Martha Washington—proving that without our exemplary women, the new country might never have survived.
