This lesson encourages students to analyze the differences between crime shows in Canada, Britain and the United States. Students discuss the general differences between Canadian, British and American television dramas as well as the specific differences between crime dramas from these countries. Groups of students then view, evaluate and compare two crime dramas from different countries and report their findings to the class.
This lesson and all associated documents (handouts, overheads, backgrounders) are available in an easy-print, pdf kit version.
