    Watch this short film on Class Clips, with metadata and resources targeted for use in the classroom.

    This episode can be used to approach discussions about same-sex relationships. The scenes where the boys discuss homophobia and where Monica describes Martin as 'not looking gay' are useful to address not just homophobia but stereotypes too. It is also useful to be able to examine Monica's part of the storyline to discuss her feelings, including those of rejection (which are relevant to all relationships) and how to manage them - understanding that some relationships simply don't work and that no-one is to blame, or is at fault.
