Here We Are: Feminism for the Real World (Self-Paced Book Club)

This collection of essays, poems, and artwork explores modern-day feminism in a way that's accessible and meaningful to teens.

Authors featured include Laverne Cox, Amandla Stenberg, and Roxane Gay.

These essays lean into the contradictions and complications of feminism in a way that leaves readers equipped to question its definition and impact for themselves.

How does a self-paced book club work?

A self-paced book club is a great option for digging deeper into a text and doing some activities to help with your understanding and analysis of the text and its themes.

Included in this class, you'll find the following:

  • A suggested reading schedule (broken into four weeks)
  • A PDF reading guide with comprehension questions for each week
  • Vocabulary activities
  • Writing/multimodal project prompts related to the reading
  • Rubrics for parents/guardians to give feedback on projects
  • Links to supplemental resources related to the text and its themes

The class was designed to take about a month to complete, but you can complete it at whatever pace works for you!
