The story of Catholic sisters in America provides a gateway for teachers and students to explore many facets of U.S. history. Meet the remarkable women who played important roles in:
- the immigration experience
- landmark events in U.S. history such as the Civil War
- the development of public services such as health care and education that many of us take for granted
The WOMEN & SPIRIT: Catholic Sisters in America exhibition includes education materials that will be available here so that teachers can bring this extraordinary story to their students. The materials will be suitable for use in public as well as parochial K-12 schools and will be linked to national and state standards in history and social sciences. Materials will focus on the biographies of Catholic sisters and their many accomplishments as well as understanding the context of their contributions and their ongoing impact on our lives today.
