Color-blind : fighting racism in schools( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As school populations become more and more diverse, racial intolerance is shoving its way to prominence. In this provocative program, five students from a variety of cultural and ethnic backgrounds speak with candor about racial harassment at their high school in an effort to encourage teenagers to examine their own attitudes and behaviors. The greatest danger of racism is that it will go unaddressed-until it becomes headline news. This video, ideal as a discussion-starter both in classrooms and at workshops, helps to ensure that this will not be the case
XS stress : teens take control( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Depression, anxiety, and an overwhelming schedule may be hallmarks of adulthood, but many young people are also familiar with them. This program gathers together the voices of teenagers as they reflect on personal frustrations and challenges. In an expressive flow of words, images, and music, three high school students - an ambitious male cheerleader raised by a single mother, a pierced and tatooed recovering cutter, and a dyslexic student wrestling with her anger at the school system - articulate fascinating perspectives, along with a chorus of others. The result is an excellent catalyst for class discussions about peer pressure, authority and the future

In Canada, diversity is represented as "an ethnicity + a hyphen + Canadian." But what if you are one of the many people who don't fit into an obvious category? What if your background is a hybrid of ancestries and you live "in the hyphen"--Somewhere in between, where cultural identities overlap? This program examines the experiences of poet Fred Wah and six other Canadians with one parent from a European background and one from a visible minority. As globalization increasingly blurs borders of all kinds, Living in the Hyphen offers a provocative glimpse of a future in which hyphens give way to a celebration of mixed heritages

The Spectrum of Murder( Visual )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What motivates one person to kill another, and why are some developed countries-most notably the U.S.-more prone to homicide than others? These are the questions that anthropologist Elliott Leyton sets out to answer in this program as he analyzes the spectrum of murder, from single homicides to murder rampages and serial killings. Glimpses of infamous landmarks such as the Ted Bundy and Boston Strangler cases, interviews with death row inmates, footage of a homicide suspect interrogation, and a discussion of the effects of societal saturation with murder-related news, movies, and TV shows shed light on the dark psychology of killers

An examination of murder used as a large-scale weapon-terrorism, war, and state-sponsored genocide-concludes the program

Presenting rarely heard voices, El Contrato is an uncompromising look at the migrant worker's plight
