I am reading I Am Malala with my 10th graders and realized that this would be an EXCELLENT opportunity to talk about Feminism in society and Feminist Literary Criticism.

Feminism is about empowering women, but it is also about looking at the ways in which society prevents all genders from straying from the gender binary.

That being said, I made this Slides Presentation, Notes Sheet, and Bechdel Test Assignment very general so that it could be used with any class!

What you receive:

1. A 21 slide google slides presentation on feminism & feminist literary criticism -- Also covers the "gender binary" and the difference between "sex" and "gender."

2. A guided notes sheet that follows the slide presentation -- it also tells the kids when to STOP and go to google classroom for....

3. The Bechdel test assignment in which students explore bechdeltest.com and try to see if their films pass the test.

At the end of the guided notes, we are reading feminist literary criticism: http://writersinspire.org/content/feminist-approaches-literature

Then we are applying this information to Lamb to the Slaughter by Roald Dahl. I love the story, but it is interesting to pick it apart using the lens. You can really use any text you wish, all you have to do is adjust the table at the end and you're good to hecking go!

I HOPE YOU ENJOY <3
