On Thursday, tenth graders went to the National Museum of the American Indian to further their research on matriarchal societies. In Global History, tenth graders are researching the social structures that have caused divisions and inequity in this society: namely gender, race, and class, as well as alternatives to the approach this society has taken to these social divisions by examining other societies across geography and history. By the end of the semester, students will construct their ideal societies. Using their research about the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) of New York State, Pueblo societies of the Southwest, the Musuo of Southwestern China, and other matriarchal societies past and present, the tenth graders will examine whether or not gender equity is possible in human societies.
