Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
By the end of the course, learners will have a foundational theoretical understandings of introductory feminist concepts. Students will leave the course inspired to continue to fight for social justice in their own local and global communities. 
I am a Ph.D. student in Gender, Feminist, and Women's studies and have been teaching children and teens for over 10 years. I currently teach Feminist Studies and Sexuality Studies at a top Canadian university. I self-identify as queer and disabled. I cultivate safe and welcoming learning settings for students of all backgrounds and identities. I take great care to ensure my classes are accessible for neurodivergent and disabled learners. Please feel free to message me about any accommodations your child may need so that I can make the environment more accessible, comfortable, and enjoyable for them. My personal teaching ethos is built on an intersectional, anti-racist, feminist framework. I foster kindness, curiosity, mutual respect, compassion, empathy, care, and fun in my learning environments. 
There is no homework for this class. Students are encouraged to share a short presentation (5mins) in our final class of a topic they want to share with their peers related to feminism and social justice. Often students get really excited to share their projects and spend some time putting together some slides or materials to share with students. Besides that, there is no additional reading or homework. I often link supplementary materials like articles or TedTalks in the classroom if students are interested in learning more about a topic but reading/watching these are optional. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Please let me know if you would like me to fill out any completion forms or paperwork for students who are completing homeschool education. 
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We will be having conversations around potentially sensitive subjects including gender inequality and racism. I am trained as a feminist scholar and will ensure that the class is a safe place for these conversations to take place for all learners of all identities.
