Lots of people like to use TV shows, but a lot of teachers get stuck in โ€œtheirโ€ generation. Many of our students weren't even born when shows like Full House and even Friends ended. It is important to bring updated media to our students' repertoire and for us to consider new shows that might reflect American culture as the times change. Shows of 2022 have more diversity representation, storylines and characters that reflect the makeup of the U.S. better than in the past, and often tackle issues that our students will see reflected during their stay in the U.S. or read about overseas. In this episode we give you ideas and suggestions for more modern media.
