Y12 - Pop Culture and Social Issues

This year my students and I have been delving deeply into the issues of racism and segregation.

We've been studying 'The Hypnotist' by Lawrence Anholt and will be studying 'Selma' as well later this term.

Our upcoming assessment is close viewing. Usually I do Party in the Car with Y12 and we analyse driving ads.

At the moment I'm thinking that using Childish Gambino's 'This is America' would be a much stronger use of close viewing material as there is so much in there to pull apart. Also, it fits in with our overall thematic focus.

Plus, we could use this for our Info Lit assessment too. Win win!

If you've yet to check out the video - please do so!

Here is a link to FBE's College React video.
