The Battle for Suffrage 

Notes should reflect:

POV: What are the central ideas?  What does the author want you to know, think, and believe?
Evidence: How can you tell what the author wants you to know, think, and believe?  What does s/he say specifically?  Who does s/he quote directly?  What numerical or statistical data does the author provide to support her/his claims?
Connections: How does this connect to the unit’s essential question?  How does this text connect to other texts?  How can you use this text to support a claim or counter-claim you will make in an upcoming essay?

Reflections: What most surprised you about this text?  What inspired you?  What offended you?  Why?
