In 2013, Dan Meyer released a video which edited together all of the negative comments about math made in Hollywood movies. It was called Hollywood Hates Math. Recently, two television shows premiered that center their stories around the professional lives of teachers.
Here are a couple of clips:
Art class in Teachers on TV Land
Spanish, History, and Gym classes in Those Who Can’t on TruTV
Besides filling the stereotypical gender roles of elementary and high school teachers, these scenes provide a litany of examples where teachers are portrayed more as “babysitters” than professionals.
Finally, here’s a bonus clip from a show you may already be familiar with, Girl Meets World. I’ll leave you with this question, what was the lesson plan?
