Dr. Patricia Supplee and her assistant Robin Blair visited Mr. David Wronko’s Asbury Park social studies class to have the students participate in the voting rights timeline of history. The timeline showed voting rights from the colonial period to the American Revolution, the beginnings of the United States as a country, the American Civil War, Reconstruction, World War One and Two, Korean War, Vietnam War and Civil Rights era, and present day. All the students were given an avatar. Every avatar was different and represented a different kind of person. The students had to determine if they had the right to vote based on what era of history was presented on the timeline. The students were very engaged and learned a lot about voting rights throughout history, especially how it impacted women, Indigenous people, and African Americans.
