A Teaching Opportunity
Broaden horizons. Empower your students.
The message of Girl Rising has played to packed movie theaters, corporate boardrooms and political arenas worldwide. Now you can bring it to your campus or your classroom.
Using the Girl Rising Educator’s Edition and the Girl Rising curriculum, you can engage your students in meaningful discussion and lessons by encouraging them to think about important political, cultural, historical, economic, and geographic issues tied to educating girls — and about their responsibilities to their own communities and their role as global citizens.

Girl Rising Curriculum
The free standards-aligned curriculum, created in collaboration with the Pearson Foundation, provides teachers with a unique opportunity to educate students about the issues surrounding girls' education in the developing world.
The curriculum, based on two chapters of the film – Suma from Nepal and Senna from Peru – includes project-based lessons, an assessment tool to measure student learning, and resources to spark discussion and prompt students to take action. It stands alone, or provides a potent complement to the Educator’s Edition DVD.
