We design resources for teachers and educate them how to use them effectively in their classrooms. We make our resources and training available in person, through workshops and coaching, and online, through databases, classes, blogs, and podcasts.
Currently, our educators teams are designing a Gender-Inclusive Global History Curriculum for grades 9-10, an anti-bias math program: Why Math Needs Girls and Women for grades 9-12, Feminism for Middle School Boys and Girls for grades 4-8, and a Feminist Transcript for grades 8-12. We plan to bring these programs and more into schools beginning in the fall of 2020. Follow our Educator Blog to see sample lesson plans and resources.
How will we measure our impact?
In 5 years, our 12 programs, 35 guides, 20 online courses, will help 10,000 educators in at least 25 schools/districts #teachaboutwomen. That means over 50,000 students will benefit from our resources by 2024.
Collaboration and experimentation are at the heart of everything we do.
Across the country, educators want to and need to teach more content related to women’s and gender studies, particularly using intersectional frameworks that include systemic explorations of racism, sexism, classism, homophobia, and transphobia. Teach About Women gives teachers the tools and skills they need to give their students a more complete and more just vision of the world
