Studying history is too often only about HIS-story.
In other words, women’s voices and contributions often get much less attention when young people learn about the past.
Women's History Month is an opportunity to change that.
This March, help your learner explore amazing contributions women have made to society. Contributions to art, science, politics and other fields. Contributions often made while facing unequal opportunity and undue oppression.
Better yet, your youngster can learn about these great women with other curious kids and a passionate Outschool teacher.
This March, explore Outschool's engaging, safe and social women’s history classes available for young learners.
By sharing stories and contributions of historic women with young learners, we hope the next generation will seek out inclusive, diverse voices when recording important events.
Here are five classes Outschool teachers are currently offering that can help your learner explore women who have made, eh-hem...HER-story.
In this class for learners ages 8-12, learners take a look at the lives and impact of different women, both from history and modern day. Each class focuses on a different woman who made an impact in history. Some examples include:
- Michelle Obama
- Harriet Beecher Stowe
- Julia Child
- Josephine Baker
- Joan of Arc
Courses in this series for learners 9-13 are a great way to introduce students to American history featuring African Americans through storytelling, learning vocabulary words, and recall. The Bold Women in Black History Series will provide a strong foundation for long-term African American history studies.
No prior knowledge of African American history is necessary, only a passion for learning.
In this one day course for learners 9-13, kids will learn about, discuss and analyze important women in history.
Your learner will study the women’s past, how they became influential and what contributions they have made on history. The class will also consider how they have shaped society and history, as well as how strong their impact influences us today.
The teacher will provide pictures of each woman so the students are able to visualize who it is they are learning about, as well as discussions and questions are always welcomed. No previous experience or knowledge is required, just come ready to have some fun!
During this class for learners 6-11, students will celebrate International Women's day by exploring and enjoying an enthusiastic read-a-loud from the best-selling book She Persisted!
In this class, kids will learn about 13 different historical figures! Learners will then be able to chose a coloring/doodle note page to complete about their favorite female historical figures. Learners will have the opportunity to interact with the teacher and other learners through engaging and thoughtful questions throughout the class.
Well-behaved women seldom make history, and in this class for learners 10-15, learners will meet 10 defiant women in world history who didn't ask permission to make their mark on the world.
Kids will learn about some well-known troublemakers like Malala Yousafazi and Marie Curie, but also about lesser-known rebel-rousers such as Emmeline Pankhurst and Ada Lovelace.
Of course, there are many more examples of women who have made (and continue to make) important contributions to history and the present. Fortunately, there are also many more women’s history-themed classes on Outschool.
