This week during class, we discussed body politics and the stereotypes that are portrayed in society. In particular we talked extensively on the concepts of substance abuse, mental/physical illness and self harm. We also watched a great video, which I highly recommend, that led to an excellent discussion on the portrayal of high schools in society. We ended off by sharing opinions on the religious relevance of this unit and began a discussion, which I hope to continue next class, on the students' concepts of the Torah in reference to mental illness and body politics.
