―Educating Girls‖
| Introduction and Course Description
Before we begin this course, I wish to
encourage you to see the film,
,
an extraordinary film about theindisputable impact of educating girls.Please see the Girl Rising Curriculum  produced by the Pearson Foundation
 
This course honors that film as partialsource material for coursework designedto enhance awareness, for teachers, aboutthe pressing issues facing girls educationtoday. According to major research studies, educated girls are 50% more likely to immunize their children in the future. With an extra year of education, a girl can earn up to 20% more as anadult. A child born to a literate mother is 50% more likely to survive past the age of 5.

In order for girls’ education to g
ain momentum, the power of educating girl requires a catalyst
 –
 teachers: the largest professionally trained group in the world. If educating girls is critical todevelopment, then supporting teachers is the multiplying factor of change.While the education of girls propels all development efforts, no single solution works. Immunizingchildren, installing water filtration systems, and distributing mosquito nets have had remarkableresults; more children survive and more attend school. However, public health often hinges onhygiene
education
campaigns, community participation, investment, ongoing support, andmeasurement.
It takes a world to educate a girl and her teachers.
 
―Educating Girls‖
revolves around four themes: access, public health,emergencies, and empowerment by examining sectors andstakeholders, teaching and learning, top-down policy and bottom-upmovements.
We’ll only
touch the surface. It is said that the humanities teach alittle about a lot and the sciences teach a lot about a little. Perhaps.It will be up to the student to go deep or wide, local or global. Onefact is certain: this course is a
call to action
.
Online courses don’t
have the intimate feeling that can come fromgathering face-to-face, but they can be far more inclusive.
"Educating Girls‖
encourages both
the intimacy of colleagues who gather around issues that matter 
 –
and theinclusion of new friends making a difference. You may not be able to eat together or shake each
