Let’s explore how Women have gotten into Good Trouble!
As we celebrate Women’s History Month and the many contributions that women past and present have bestowed upon society, join us in the Minecraft Good Trouble World as we teleport through time to meet two AMAZING Women who were catalysts for positive change:
- Women’s Right to Vote: After women win the right to vote students will help collect the first votes from women in London
- Girls’ Right to an Education: After the Taliban has destroyed the school in Malala’s village, students will help rebuild a state of the art school where girls can attend
This 90-minute, co-taught lesson is facilitated by two of the creators of the Good Trouble lesson series, Natasha Rachell and Felisa Ford – who are also current educators!
