KIDSNET, Washington, DC.
"Same Difference," the television program featured in this videotape and teaching guide, tells the story of a friendship that blossoms into love between Shelley and Vinnie, a young couple with different ethnic and religious backgrounds, Jewish and Italian Catholic. Despite family opposition and personal difficulties, the spirit of Passover and Easter bring the families together as they embrace each other's worlds. 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 U.S. history and social studies, English and language arts, mathematics, media literacy, art, and life skills.
