To support the Boston Women's Memorial (BWM), IMPACT II TeachNet Learn & Serve offered high school teachers interested in Women's History, Writing, and Public Art a series of opportunities and learning experiences:
Field Trip/Program ~ Pen & Parchment: Abigail & John ~ at the Adams National Historical Park, Quincy
Teaching Boston History WORKSHOPS ~ Abigail Adams, Phillis Wheatley and Lucy Stone: Patriotism, Poetry and Persistence ~ at the Old State House Museum
Grant Options for teacher participants and their students to develop projects inspired by BWM

Results show Classroom, Community, and Career activities that identify women committed to social change and public service. Hopefully, these BWM Signature Projects ~ Learn & Serve will inspire students and teachers to research women and restore them to their rightful place in history.

About the Project Archives: The project was active between 2002 and 2007, with teacher-designed projects implemented and published on the website. This site now presents the archives from this project. While many of the teachers and partners may have retired or moved to other schools and projects, the materials published here continue to be valuable to readers, with both the concepts and the projects themselves continuing to be widely read.
