Portraits of Courage: The Story of Women's Suffrage in Arkansas

The centuries-long fight for women's suffrage was slow and arduous. Suffragists around the world took part in parades and protests to garner support, while men in office challenged their colleagues to support or deny equal voting rights for women. The story of suffrage in Arkansas is largely undocumented and sometimes unclear. Portraits of Courage explores women's suffrage in The Natural State, taking a unique look at some of the more influential Arkansas suffragists as well as some of the national figures who inspired their fight. Combining creative reenactments and interviews with leading Arkansas historians, professors, and modern day activists, this course shows that while the Nineteenth Amendment celebrates its 100th anniversary, the lessons learned from its passage are just as relevant today.

An educator guide and standards-alignment document is provided as a resource with this course for middle and secondary teachers who wish to use Portraits in the classroom.

This course meets the scheduled Arkansas history requirement as set forth in the Rules Governing Professional Development and required by Act 969 of 2013.

Teaching Cyber Security with the Arkansas Range | Module 2 - Knowing Normal: Recognizing Traffic Patterns

Knowing what normal looks like in a network is one of the keys to understanding it, but also in being able to troubleshoot problems that might arise in that network. Learning the steps to find, track, and interpret network data are crucial skills to learn in a world where so much of what we do depends on those systems functioning efficiently. In this module, we take the first steps through exploration using tools within the Cyber Range that gather data from a network. We also begin the practice of properly recording network data.
