Description

Class Experience

Students will learn several feminist theories and understand how to apply them to the texts. 
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! 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
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.
