We can’t wait for your students to read the play in the May issue of Scope, which tells the story of World War II WASPs (Women Airforce Service Pilots) through the eyes of a young female pilot. This play holds a special place in my heart—my grandmother was a pilot for the Navy during World War II and I can totally see her moxie in the characters of Margie and Nell in Fly Girl. After reading this inspiring play, explore the resources below to keep the learning going.
Post these questions in your classroom for students to refer to as they explore the resources:
- What makes a risk worth taking?
- What effect does discrimination have on society?
- What does it take to change a long-held idea?
