You must answer the following questions based on the PBS documentary “A Class Divided”. The video has been embedded in my Canvas Shell under the module for Week #6. Everyone must write on all three questions for # I. You have a choice under Roman numerals II, III, and IV in terms of which of the assigned questions you want to answer.
I. General Reactions* (Respond to all three questions)
What did you learn?*
What scene or scenes do you think you’ll still remember a month from now and why those scenes?*
Did any part of the film surprise you? Do you think someone of a different race, ethnicity, or religion would also find it surprising?
II. Impact of Discrimination (Pick One Question)
What did the children’s body language indicate about the impact of discrimination?
How did the negative and positive labels placed on a group become self-fulfilling prophecies?
Both Elliott and her former students talk about whether or not this exercise should be done with all children. What do you think? If the exercise could be harmful to children, as Elliott suggests, what do you think actual discrimination might do?
III. Looking at the Structures that Nurture Bias (Pick One Question)
What features did Elliott ascribe to the superior and inferior groups and how did those characteristics reflect stereotypes about blacks and whites?
How did Elliott’s discrimination create no-win situations for those placed in the inferior group? How did she selectively interpret behavior to confirm the stereotypes she had assigned?
IV. Looking for Answers (Pick One Question)
At recess, two of the boys from different groups get in a fight. Elliott asks the one who was teased if responding with violence made him feel better or made the teasing stop. What does the answer suggest about the use of violence as a political strategy? At the time, who was using violence for political purposes and why?
How is the blue eyes/brown eyes exercise related to the Sioux prayer, “Help me not judge a person until I have walked in his shoes”?
