Description

Class Experience

After the success of the first When Women Write series, I thought my learners might enjoy a one-time class that delves into the books that have caused a scandal for one reason or another. Our discussions inevitably lead to connections between the author's gender and her writing, and a conversation about why and how books are banned in the context of female authorship should prove to be an excellent study indeed!

Other When Women Write titles include: ๐˜‘๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ ๐˜Œ๐˜บ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ, ๐˜๐˜ณ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฌ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ด๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ, ๐˜“๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜ต๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ž๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ, ๐˜—๐˜ณ๐˜ช๐˜ฅ๐˜ฆ & ๐˜—๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ซ๐˜ถ๐˜ฅ๐˜ช๐˜ค๐˜ฆ, ๐˜š๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ & ๐˜š๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ด๐˜ช๐˜ฃ๐˜ช๐˜ญ๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜บ, ๐˜Œ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฎ๐˜ข, ๐˜ˆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜›๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ ๐˜›๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ž๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜•๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ, ๐˜”๐˜ถ๐˜ณ๐˜ฅ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜–๐˜ณ๐˜ช๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ต ๐˜Œ๐˜น๐˜ฑ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ด๐˜ด, and ๐˜›๐˜ฐ ๐˜’๐˜ช๐˜ญ๐˜ญ ๐˜ข ๐˜”๐˜ฐ๐˜ค๐˜ฌ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ๐˜ฃ๐˜ช๐˜ณ๐˜ฅ.
Basic art supplies will be used to create our Zine: pens, colored pencils, markers, glue, scrap pages from old books and magazines, construction paper, stickers, glue, scissors, glitter, stapler, fabric, ribbon, yarn . . . and whatever else you think you might like to use to create a magazine-type collage or page.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Because sometimes books are banned for their mature content, this is a class better suited to the student who is mature enough to discuss issues of sexuality.
