So, I’ve been watching a lot of television…

4 Oct

It is the school holidays and I am watching more television than usual.  As I am a teacher, I cannot help but make connections between what I am watching and what I have seen before and, to think about how I could use these texts in the classroom.

I have caught a few episodes of Black-ish.  It occurred to me as I watched this show that it should really be studied alongside some episodes of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.  Why?  Well, both shows seek to engage with the intersections of race, class and identity.

Now, if only I could find space in the program to explore this further with one of my classes!
