Hi GT! Hope everyone is having a good Monday.
I wanted to crowdsource some ideas for a couple of lessons I’m working on. I’ve been teaching a unit on beauty standards, specifically looking at how they are reinforced in advertising and other media, and at how they vary based on the cultural context. I want to transition into exploring how concepts of beauty influence concepts of health, and how the idea of health itself is culturally subjective. I’m looking for short articles and videos that would be accessible to 11th grade intermediate English learners (although I can adapt more complex articles to their level if I need to). Can any of y’all think of anything good that you’ve seen or read lately?
