Women in History: Marian Anderson

Marian Anderson was a naturally gifted child singer who became a world renowned opera singer, despite facing racism and segregationist policies in her native United States. In this inspiring biography, children follow Anderson's story from singing in the church choir as a girl, all the way to performing at the Lincoln Memorial, Metropolitan Opera, and two presidential inaugurations. They then answer thoughtful prompts and complete a graphic organizer to reflect on what they have read. Designed for a fourth and fifth grader literacy curriculum, this worksheet supports children as they utilize the text to help them answer nonfiction comprehension questions.
