Girls making history teaches girls about American history.
Learn through interactive experiences of what girlhood would have been like during a particular era. Comparisons of popular culture, then and now, are designed to help girls begin to think critically about culture, what it means to be a Christian woman in our own day, and perhaps discover "new" ideas for hobbies and play. Dolls and period dress are welcome but not required.
Studying history changed the way I see everything.
I believe it's important to do more than remember events, places and people. I know that exploring historical settings and circumstances has helped me better understand my life as an educator and mentor. Helping others recreate some of these times isn't something I want to do—it's something I'm compelled to do because I know what an impact it has had on my life.
My (abridged) American history.
I'm Dallas Bradel, creator of Girls Making History. I grew up in Pennsylvania, and graduated from Lehigh University, Duquesne University School of Law and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. I've never outgrown my enjoyment of dolls or dress-up, and can't wait to share my love for history with new students. I would love to hear from you, and please ask any questions about Girls Making History.
