As an alternative, they offered to sell selected correspondence courses to teachers or to those interested in teaching.

The League also offered a Secondary Teacher’s Review Bulletin intended to provide a summary and bibliography of current articles of interest to educators.|

|Issue 1 of Volume I of “The Pioneer of an American Woman’s Republic” was published by the American Woman’s League probably in the spring of 1911.
