Vigil, Carolynne; Robinson, Julia
This paper presents a 2-week unit on stereotype and bias in the media (using wolves as an example) to develop children's critical viewing of television and to develop their thinking skills. The paper begins with a description of the daily grammar, weekly spelling, and science activities, and then presents a description of class activities for each of the 10 days of the unit. The paper also provides a 24-item bibliography of wolf books; a 14-item list of children's literature used in the unit; a 33-item list of facts about wolves as seen in videos; 30 wolf questions generated from videos; 12 reflective questions about stereotype and bias; a letter to parents explaining the unit; and a list of 11 resources, including 4 web sites.
