Bechdel test – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bechdel test - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

I read “Fun Home,” a graphic novel by a local author named Alison Bechdel, last year in one of my genre classes. In doing the research for my genre project in this class, I came across something called the Bechdel test which was created by this author to identify gender bias in movies. If you actually stop to think about it, it is quite surprising how many action/adventure movies fail the Bechdel test.

You should refer to this in your media workshop!

This has been somewhat a theme so far in all three courses in the LLED block. This ideas empower the student, and will help create motivation. Students will be more compelled to get the work done if you present it in a way to them that doesn’t feel like they are doing work without a purpose. Just thought I’d share, some good ideas!

I like the choice that these examples provide for students!
