This course is an overview of the concept of feminism. We have tried to simplify the subject in a way that it is easy for everyone (no matter their age) to understand. It is important to highlight that feminism is a deeper concept and there is much more to it than simply equality and freedom of the woman. After an introduction to the topic and its meaning, we have gathered a series of online resources that can be used to teach about feminism. Finally, we provide extra sources in case you want to keep learning and investigating about teaching feminism in pre-school or primary school.
When teaching feminism in a real or online lesson, there are several resources at hand. We can start a conversation with our students at the beginning in order to make them reflect on some stereotypes or typical situations in which sexism towards women is reflected. Then, we can start a small theoretical lesson. We should consider we are teaching kids from ages 3-12 approximately, so it would be nice if we made the lesson interesting in tone, e.g. using storytelling techniques.
Here we provide some tools you can find on the internet.
