Description

Class Experience

Students will improve their understanding of feminism from an academic point of view. This class aims to cut through the reputation of "feminists" as strident or unfriendly to provide an age-appropriate breakdown of the academic scholarship, its application to our world, and the future of the movemet.
I am formally trained in using gender as a way of analyzing history. In addition, I have taught multiple women's studies courses in the class. 
Students will have homework assigned after each class meeting, but these assignments will be application based. For example, they may need to find a news article that represents gender bias or brainstorm ways that they can apply what they have learned to their daily lives. 
I will supply all the curriculum necessary for this class. We will discuss some materials in class. In addition, I will provide the reading materials to the parents through Outschool before the class actually begins.
4 hours 35 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
We will refer to several outside sources throughout the class, including statements by the U.N., the U.S. federal government, and historical feminist thinkers ( Gloria Steinem, Audre Lourde, Michelle Obama, etc.).
