Blindspots and Changing Attitudes. Curriculum Guide.
Los Angeles County Commission on Human Relations, CA.
This curriculum guide is intended as a resource for persons who work toward changing attitudes and overcoming prejudices and offers resources for addressing "blindspots," areas of stereotyping and prejudice of which one may be unaware. The material, current as of April 1987, is drawn from educational, psychological, and ecumenical sources, among others. Under a section titled "Building Blocks", several formats for workshop segments are suggested. Each format is designed to address a particular aspect of prejudice or stereotyping through structured activities and the use of various materials. The annotated bibliography comprises 51 items, including a list of curriculum units and resources on prejudice and intergroup tension. The audiovisual guide describes 66 films. A final section, Topical Index, provides selections from the bibliography and audiovisual list organized under the following specific areas of prejudice: (1) American Indians; (2) Asian-Pacific persons; (3) Blacks; (4) Latinos; (5) the disabled; (6) sexism in teacher education; and (7) religious differences.
