The Miss Representation curriculum helps students from kindergarten through university develop media literacy and critically examine representations of gender. To date, we have distributed more than 5,000 copies worldwide.
ABOUT THE CURRICULUM
The Miss Representation Curriculum features film content and lessons tailored for K-2nd, 3-5th, 6-8th, high school, and university audiences. Additionally, secondary and post-secondary educators can incorporate the entire documentary into courses such as English, health, political science, sociology, communications, or gender studies.
Released in November 2014, the updated and enhanced Miss Representation Curriculum includes:
- Expanded content for K-5 grade levels, including new video. Watch a sneak peek below
- Increased focus on hands-on learning and students making their own media
- Enhanced integration with social media

We surveyed middle and high school educators who are using the Miss Representation Curriculum and nearly 100% of them found that the curriculum grew students’ media literacy. Students learned how stereotypes, sexism, and the lack of diversity in media affect self-perceptions and cultural norms. Here’s what they had to say:
I taught all of the modules. Loved the content. Perfect for 8th graders.

I absolutely loved the content. My students were engaged and enlightened. Well done! I’m very excited about the impact of your message. Let’s change the world through our next generation. One of my students referenced the film in her graduation speech. I was so proud!
