Project #88249 - U.S political science

 

Topic: Civil Rights - Racism, Prejudice, Discrimination, and the Power of Privilege

 

Watch “A Class Divided” and answer all of the CSAR questions in a wiki-document: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/divided/etc/view.html

 

Answer these question   ( each question should more than 8 lines)

Looking at the Structures that Nurture Bias:

 

1. What features did Elliott ascribe to the “superior” and “inferior” groups, and how did those characteristics reflect stereotypes about African Americans and whites/Caucasians?

 

2. 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?

 

3. It may be easy to understand why third-graders might not refuse to obey their teacher, but when the exercise is done with the prison guards, why don’t any of the adults object?

 

Impact of Discrimination:

 

4. What did the children’s body language indicate about the impact of discrimination?

 

5. How did the negative and positive labels placed on a group become self-fulfilling prophecies?

 

6. In the prison seminar, one of the white women asserts that all people face some kind of discrimination. Another woman challenges her, claiming that whites can’t really know what it’s like to face discrimination every minute of every day.  What do you think?

 

7. 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?

 

General Reactions:

 

8. What scene or scenes do you think you will still remember a month from now and why?
