I guess it's not so teachable, as highly informative in using an example of fluid sexuality.  If anyone ever was interested, it would be useful to show something like that for an understanding.  I don't want to spoil it for you, but one character professes love for another character of the same sex, who is already in a relationship.  Both seem to exude a fluidity, and go about executing their emotions in different ways.  It's also a Sex Ed episode.

Lindsay - great photos! Sean - we watch the seasons on DVD - what were the highly teachable plot points? Ry

Oh!  Last night's episode of Glee was fantastic for sexual fluidity, which is highly under-represented and talked about, let alone its more "structured" form bisexuality.  Touchy subject, of course, but perhaps for a college course or upper level high school when talking about the subject of sexuality or media's and society's constructs of gender expectations.

Again, Ryan. It didn't occur to me. When an idea takes hold of me, I guess I first think share rather than discussion forum. Thanks for always reminding me.

Thanks for sharing this Shirley - consider posting it up in the discussion forum as things on the comment wall get buried over time and are not shared on the WIR.

RRG:)

How about religion and identify? The article "Combating Anti-Muslim Bias" appears in the latest Teaching Tolerance magazine. This info might be used  with the film Mooz-lum which is in limited release around the country. The blurb at IMDb says: "Amid a strict Muslim rearing and a social life he's never had, Tariq enters college confused. New peers, family and mentors help him find his place, but the 9-11 attacks force him to face his past and make the biggest decisions of his life." The movie is also on Facebook where you and your students can offer and read comments. The comments themselves could be a lesson or two. Can we say "point of view" and "interpretation" of text?

No prob - we want the cool resources to stick around :)!

Okay, Ry. I moved it to discussion. I just didn't think to do it that way.
