Detecting Prejudice. A Handbook for You On Discrimination In Visual Materials.
Populot Educational Resources, Montreal (Quebec).
This is a handbook for teachers on detecting prejudice and discrimination in visual materials. The guide begins with a quiz to determine an individual's predisposition to prejudice. In the next section articles and pictures taken from the media are found which show discriminatory attitudes toward minority groups and relate how people are affected by actions resulting from these attitudes. The last section provides ways in which individuals, teachers, and community action groups can fight prejudice. A glossary of relevant terms, the addresses of several resource groups, and a list of available films and books conclude the guide. (APM)
