Every Single Word

Get inspired by this Tumblr site to edit your favorite films or TV shows and highlight the lack of diversity around race, class, gender or sexuality. Modified assignment: watch and account for the minutes of dialogue and screen time for different types of characters. For discussion:

  • What do you observe about the differences in screen time allotted to different groups?
  • How do different amounts of screen time reflect on or impact the way audiences might understand the different groups represented?
  • How would you characterize the representations of the groups that have the most screen time? the least screen time?
