Tell students they will work in small groups to research the following questions. Each small group may be asked to focus on investigating one of the Famous 5, using their Profiles below. Emphasize the need now to look for details and analyze the information in the sources.

  • What did this woman contribute to her community as a citizen?

  • To which communities did she contribute?

  • How was this woman viewed by others in her fight for the causes she believed in?

  • How is this woman viewed today?

  • What opinions and actions of this woman's do you agree with?

  • What do you disagree with?

  • What are some parallels from current issues?

  • Are there other examples of individuals or groups that fight as citizens for causes?

  • How would you use the examples from this woman's life to define a citizen?

  • What would you consider to be the rights and responsibilities of citizenship?

Have each group use the website section on The 'Persons' Case to answer the questions from the perspective of the Famous 5 working as a group of citizens.

Students may also be asked to use Analyzing a photograph and Analyzing a document to help them discuss and examine the sources.
