I have been trying to improve some of the A level resources. I feel that in the topic for the AQA Spanish A-level 3.3 Los derechos de los gays y las personas transgénero there is a lack of material on transgender, so hopefully the attached will help to address this.
I have looked at what are some standard areas of discussion:
- Terminology and identity
- An example of a successful transgender woman in the male dominated arena of sport
- The bathroom debate and its impact on non-binary people
- Use of the term “latinx”, especially in the US.
The first post is on terminology. In the PowerPoint I start off by showing a clip from a Pedro Almodóvar film in which Bibi Andersen or Bibiana Fernández, the trans actor, appears. This is because we are studying the film VOLVER and I am trying to drop in clips from other films by Almodóvar just to point out recurring techniques, etc. You can delete that bit if you prefer! Then, in a rather indirect way, we get to a video explaining different terminology. The slides on el español rioplatense are because the video voiceover is in this accent and I just wanted to highlight this.
