RESPONSE OPTIONS

promotional posters for one of the sporting
events mentioned in this book.

of the women from this
book or any accomplished
female sports figure. Ask them to
use class books, the library, or the Internet
to find out more information on their subject.
Encourage students to discuss why they
picked a particular person.

Skill Work
TEACH/REVIEW VOCABULARY
Divide the group into teams. Play a quick
game where students take turns giving
definitions of the words while the rest of the
team guesses the words. Whichever team
guesses the correct word first, wins.
Students might not be familiar with
some of the sports terminology. Review
outfield, windup, and fastball, as well as
croquet, and badminton (page 3), and bunt
(page 8).

TARGET SKILL AND STRATEGY
SEQUENCE Remind students that
sequence means the order in which things
happen. Point out that the information in
this book tracks women’s accomplishments
in sports throughout the twentieth century.
Suggest students take notes as they read to
help them keep track of all the “firsts” that
these women achieved.
ASK QUESTIONS Review that asking
questions before, during, and after reading
will help students focus and comprehend
the text. Students can generate questions
to help them focus on and keep track of
the sequence of events that take place in
the history of women’s sports. Tell students
that as they read, they should write down
a couple of questions they want answered.
For example, when they get to the section
on women’s baseball, they might ask:
When was the first women’s baseball league
established? What events caused the league
to finally shut down?

ADDITIONAL SKILL INSTRUCTION
COMPARE AND CONTRAST

Remind students
that to compare and contrast things means
to look for how they are alike and different.
Students can compare information in the
book to their own knowledge; they should
also pay attention to the comparisons
and contrasts that the author makes.
Tell students that as they read, they can
compare women’s sports of the past to what
they know of women’s sports today.
