This resource directs students to watch and analyze a powerful PSA video filmed in the U.S. by the non-profit organization Ad Council (http://www.adcouncil.org). The ad, which is part of a diversity and inclusion campaign, went viral online in March, 2015. Students will watch the video then respond to it in a journal about love. Students will consider the language of the video to rethink bias, as the ad reminds viewers that love has no gender, race, disability, age or religion. The task includes:
- A video link to Ad Council’s PSA: Love Has No Labels.
- Written instructions for a journal.
- A link to a web site (http://lovehasnolabels.com) for extension activities.
- Two sample student responses, including one to the journal prompt and one to a short-answer question asking viewers to describe what the heart sees based on watching the video.
