Short Description: 

Katelyn Burton ( created the framework for this lesson plan while an Instruction Librarian at Radford University, a jigsaw comparing four different sources. Katelyn and Alyssa Alyssa worked with Dr. Michele Ren's Women's and Gender Studies 200 class at Radford. Dr. Ren asked for something related to global women's issues. Alyssa decided that the "Share the Load" Ariel commercial related to gender divisions of household labor would be topical, and something that students could relate to, and chose four sources that fit into Katelyn's framework.
