Class Experience

Students will have inspiring conversations about brave girls. We will watch and discuss uplifting stories about girls who are courageous and stick up for what they believe in. 
I am a Ph.D. student in Gender, Feminist, and Women's studies with a specialty in film. I've been teaching kids and teens for 8+ years!
Students will need to watch the weekly film before class and come prepared to discuss the themes of the week (provided the week before)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
I have included films that are age appropriate for pre-teenagers. Please note ratings above. I have specifically chosen films that do not contain any explicit content.
A subscription to Disney+ and Netflix is recommended for easy access to films.
