Sex in the Media: Media education material for TEENAGERS
Year of production: 2020
Professionals working together with adolescents in the eight grade or older can use this material to introduce the students to the topic of sexualised media content and the ways it influence our perceptions. The material is especially intended for first language and literature studies, but can be utilized in other subjects or within youth work.
The material consists of information, questions for discussions, and assignments, and it covers three separate topics: sexual content in commercial
media, gender depictions, and pornography as sex education. The material is intended to be used together with the video Sex in the Media.
A teacher knows his/her students, and can use the material in a way that suits the entire group. Depending on the teacher’s decision, the subject can be dealt with in different ways: with the entire class, in smaller groups or individually.
