Lesson 3 on Body Image & Gender

The lesson on Tues & Weds (Sept 24 & 25), began with students submitting their Self-Reflection Project. Then students worked in groups to share connections, extensions, and challenges that the segment from the MissRepresentation video segment as they relate to body image and gender. Next, students returned to the challenges or puzzles that the MissRepresentation Video segment presented and came up with a Headline that captured this question. Students then analyzed magazine advertisements by answering four questions which we debriefed as a whole class. We wrapped up the activity by watching “Man Prayer“. If interested, this TEDx Talk by Rick Guidotti “From Stigma to Supermodel” is an inspiring exploration of the notion of ‘beauty’ and its effect on a person’s self-esteem.
