The Tropes vs. Women in Video Games series has had a tremendous impact on the ways in which our culture thinks about and talks about video games, and the links between the values expressed in popular media and the values of our larger society. We’ve always intended Tropes to serve as a resource for educators, and now we’re very pleased to provide a way to help people get even more out of the landmark series.
We proudly present a curriculum supporting the Tropes vs. Women in Video Games series. Designed by education experts for use in the classroom, in community organizations, and anywhere that educators or viewers may wish to get the most out of the Tropes series, the curriculum features lessons crafted specifically around every individual episode of Tropes. These robust lesson plans offer educators a rich, flexible assortment of activities, discussion topics and related resources to aid viewers in making connections between the information presented in the videos themselves and the ways in which women are viewed and treated in our culture at large. The entire curriculum is freely available in PDF form, and it’s sure to get students and other viewers thinking about the videos in new and insightful ways.
