Born into brothels companion curriculum

Designed to be as comprehensive and informative as possible, this guide can be used in its entirety as an in-depth unit of study or individual lessons can stand alone as learning extensions after watching the film. Prior to showing the film, educators should prepare learners by discussing key topics addressed in the film. For example, educators could review with students the history of West Bengal or review a list of the ˜red light districts" around the world. This guide is designed primarily for high school students, though parts of it may be valuable for middle school learners as well. It can be used in social and international studies classes, history classes and even art classes, or as a stand-alone learning opportunity. It can also be used in community settings, such as film festivals, house party screenings, or group meetings.
