GWU developing 'I Am Malala' curriculum tools

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- The George Washington University Global Women's Institute announced that it work with the Little, Brown and Company to develop curriculum tools to accompany the book, "I Am Malala."  

GWI is the educational partner of the non-profit Malala Fund.

The fund is named after Malala Yousafzai, aims to ensure girls everywhere have access to education.

The book focuses on Malala Yousafzai's efforts to promote girls' education, even after the Taliban tried to kill her in a shooting a year ago.

GWI representatives say the curriculum will be available for free to faculty members and students worldwide beginning in mid-2014. We are told the curriculum will focus on themes such as the importance of a woman's voice, how education empowers women, global feminism, political extremism and youth activism. Advocacy and service learning that extends beyond the classroom will be encouraged, and examples of successful campaigns and toolkits will help students take action, say representatives.
