Apples and Oranges

Educators are advised to consult their school division's material selection policy before using this program.
This video is set in a classroom where students are engaged in an exercise about bullying, stereotypes and the harmful effects that language can have on people. The students create pictures that portray sensitive situations, such as a young girl who has two moms and two boys whose friendship comes to a halt when one boy learns that the other is gay. The students' representations and stories are brought to life through animation. The program dispels myths about gays and lesbians, challenges homophobia and focuses on respect and acceptance. A teacher's guide is available.
