Breaking stereotypes

Disabled teenagers on the five-minute video Free2b appear in a variety of places and engage in a variety of activities - in school, on a train, in a sports hall etc. It's an effective way of conveying the message that disability is a social as well as a medical concept. Thoughtful resource sheets invite pupils to consider how we think of our bodies and what they can and can't do, as well as showing that school is not just a built environment, but a place where stereotypes affect other people's lives. Free2b costs pound;5.99 and is produced by Whizz-kidz, 1 Warwick Row, London SW1E 5ER.
