Girl Rising Curriculum

 

Introduction

The curriculum addresses an array of issues ranging from inquiries of global scope such as, “How do economies grow when girls are educated?” to basic questions like, “How do parents keep their daughters safe and cared for?” Through developing a better understanding of how family dynamics, poverty, political unrest, economic stability, and community expectations intersect to keep girls either in or out of school, students' views of the world will evolve.

The curriculum can be used with the free chapters of Girl Rising or any of the chapters in the full film. 

Below, you will find the following resources: Financial Empowerment Module, Upper Elementary Curriculum, Middle School Curriculum, High School Curriculum, For College Students, Girl Rising free chapters and additional resources.

New: The Financial Empowerment Module

Managing money is critical to independence, yet most young people receive little or no financial education. Our new module, created by the Global Financial Literacy Excellence Center at the George Washington University, is designed to ensure that young people have the skills they need to become empowered individuals in a rapidly changing world.

Using the stories of Girl Rising, the new lessons encourage self-efficacy and teach concepts of financial literacy to students in upper elementary, middle and high school. It adds lessons about economic independence to the existing GR curriculum and uses the stories of Girl Rising to help students develop critical skills they’ll need to become empowered individuals in a changing world.
