Description

Class Experience

Students will learn about effective strategies to educate others, participate in activism, and have fun while doing it.
I am a trained feminist studies scholar and have extensive history working as an activist and teaching about social justice issues. I've started animal-rights clubs and am actively invested in spreading word about how to protect endangered species (and include kids in the fight!).
No homework is assigned! I'm happy to send a brief summary of what a shero is for those that have not taken my other class. If the students do not have time to finish the craft, they are of course welcome to continue it afterward.
Our craft will be making protest/awareness signs to advocate for animals! Students will at least need:
-Piece of paper (ideally thick/with cardboard as a base)
-Coloring supplies
-Scissors (or pre cut-out pictures prior to class)
-Glue

The following options for materials are flexible, but if you have any of the following, it would be really fun to add to your sign!
-Images from magazines or newspapers of environment/nature/animals
-Recycled materials for decorating (e.g. bottle caps, pasta shells, the world is your oyster! pun intended :))
-Recycled materials for sign base (a cut out from old cardboard box works well!)


In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
I try my best to send personalized messages to parents after, but this is in no way a formal assessment, just a reflection :) I learn so much from each learner!
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
As a women's and gender studies scholar, I make a concerted effort to incorporate feminist theory in an approachable way. One way I do this is by including a diverse group of historical figures to celebrate. I encourage curiosity and difficult questions. Students of all gender orientations are welcome.
Curriculum will be presented on Canva, include trivia questions, and pulled from various sources including:
-The Wilderness Society
-National Geographic
-Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls (not read from directly, just for research purpose)
