Cultural Baggage. Facilitator's Manual, To Accompany the Video.
Keys, Martha M.; And Others
The video "Cultural Baggage" was created to parody stereotypes by which people are often labeled. Using comedy as the vehicle, this short video tape serves as a way to break down defenses and allow dialog to begin about how people can learn not to stereotype each other culturally or racially. The facilitator's manual is divided into four sections: (1) "Background"; (2) "Application," which discusses themes and issues, how to conduct a session, and a list of sample questions [for beginning dialogs]; (3) "Interactive", a series of lesson plans, each exploring a different bias, with evaluation feedback forms; and (4) "Resources." This program is useful to schools and organizations wishing to accomplish programs allowing the exploration and breakdown of stereotyping barriers. The program also is well-suited to implementation of cultural diversity training programs in an adult workshop format. (DQE)
