Rejected Princesses: Stories of women in history
« on: March 07, 2019, 06:54:37 PM »
Here is a nice resource that gives illustrated short stories about a variety of women who have been "forgotten" in history: https://www.rejectedprincesses.com/


I have chosen one story in particular that you can do intensive reading for: https://www.rejectedprincesses.com/princesses/mkabayi-kajama
It tells the story of a Zulu woman born to the royal family. There are also annotations. You click on the numbers under that pages and it will bring up historical facts and further details.


Below is attached a worksheet with pre-reading, during reading, and post-reading questions to guide students. You can also spend some time before the reading going over some Zulu history and get students familiar with southern Africa.
