Season 6


Consent between two people is complicated and is an ever-changing conversation. In this episode, a group of poets explores the ways in which consent isn’t what it may seem, but is a source and expression of strength. NOTE: This episode may be triggering for some viewers, so we recommend viewing it ahead of time, reading through the discussion questions and the poem, and notifying students of the topic prior to the episode being shown so they have a chance to opt out in a manner that respects their privacy. This episode is not recommended for middle school students.
