US Grade 5 - 8
Students will learn several key concepts of feminism and how to apply a feminist lens to watching movies. This is all done through age-appropriate instruction, defining complex terms in a way that kids can understand and learn from. A student who successfully completes this course will understand several important feminist ideas and be able to discuss them thoughtfully. 
I have been an English professor for ten years, and one of my personal areas of interest is feminist theory, especially when it comes to analyzing texts. I have published numerous essays about feminist issues and enjoy teaching young kids to understand the basics of feminism in hopes of creating a more equitable world! 
I teach from an intersectional feminist perspective, which means that I view gender as just ONE aspect of the world where equality has not yet been attained. We may address additional areas of social injustice, including racism, classism, ableism, and more. I also teach from a non-binary perspective. Although I use gendered language including "boys" and "girls," I also use language like "all genders" and avoid binary language. Transgender and non-binary children should feel welcome in this course, and we will do our best to use gender-inclusive language.
