Understanding Prejudice.
Babcock, David
The Teachers Guide to Media & Methods, v3 n8 p16-7 Apr 1967
To help students understand prejudice, teachers in Verona, New York, planned a unit which incorporated the use of fiction, television, and film. Students were asked to select and read books in the general area of prejudice. A sample reading list of works under the headings of Negro, Jew, Italian, and Irish was provided. After writing extensive analyses of their books, the students were assigned to panels to discuss such questions as (1) "Are the people depicted inferior?" and (2) "What are the qualifications of inferiority?" Next, the films, "A Raisin in the Sun" and "No Hiding Place," were shown for their depiction of existing problems of the Negro. Finally, the TV show, "I Spy", was used to give the students an opportunity to react to a Negro appearing as a "normal unexceptionable human being," not as an object of prejudice. (The sample reading list for a unit on prejudice is included. ) (SW)
