Boys Will Be Boys: A Fox Family Channel Afternoon Special for Cable in the Classroom. [Videotape with] Guide for Educators.
"Boys Will Be Boys," the television program featured in this videotape and teaching guide, explores the turmoil experienced by a young woman, a high school sophomore, who becomes the victim of sexual harassment at school. The program can be a springboard for discussing the larger issues of sexual harassment and women's rights today and in the past. The guide includes discussion questions and activities that encourage students to examine attitudes about sexual conduct. It contends that knowing what sexual harassment is and learning to stop it are important lessons for students in every classroom. The guide provides teachers with step-by-step strategies for using the television program, and it provides questions for pre-viewing, viewing, and post-viewing discussion, as well as activities that engage history and social studies, English and language arts, civics, media literacy, life skills, mathematics, art, and behavioral studies. (Contains a resource list of 7 books, 4 videos, and 10 Web sites.) (BT)
