This lesson is a media awareness lesson. See this lesson for more resources and ideas for teaching media literacy.
1. Discuss with students what the word might mean? Brainstorm the 2 kinds of males that they think exist out there.
2. Watch the video twice. First time, without pausing. Second time, have students stand up when they hear a word that they circled. (you can stop the video about 2/3 of the way through).
3. In groups, students brainstorm and fill out a profile for both John and Pete.
Extension: What would be the similar thing for girls? The Multi-Platform female? Make profiles for them. You might also do this lesson by having students fill out a Venn Diagram. What is different for each person and what are the similar things?
