A Future Star: Challenging Stereotypes of Diversity
Hernandez, Paul; Loebickin, Karla
Thought & Action, p87-100 Win 2015
Ice-breaking discussions around race and personal perspectives can be challenging in any classroom, they also are crucial to cultivating racial consciousness among those espousing that they know better. This provides the groundwork needed to implement--in a non-threatening manner--the creative, alternative methods that will combine students' real-life experiences with difficult academic material, and help them to realize how we all may contribute to racial inequality in society. This article presents an approach to race and inequality aimed at engaging students in the classroom while subtly teaching them that stereotypes exist in many forms and are at times unconsciously applied by most individuals and groups.
