Whether in the background or out front promoting their causes, the First Ladies of the U.S. presidents make an interesting read and basis for classroom research as addressed in the Writing component of the Common Core Standards:

Research to Build and Present Knowledge

  • Conduct short as well as more sustained research projects based on focused questions, demonstrating understanding of the subject under investigation. (The format of Fact or Fiction? introduces the First Lady by providing students with a question students will research in order to discover the answer.)
  • Gather relevant information from multiple print and digital sources, assess the credibility and accuracy of each source, and integrate the information while avoiding plagiarism;  and
  • Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research. (Students research the answer, verifying information with multiple sources, both print and digital.)
