Confronting Bias through Teaching: Insights from Social Psychology
Crittle, Chelsea; Maddox, Keith B.
Teaching of Psychology, v44 n2 p174-180 Apr 2017
Research in social psychology has the potential to address real-world issues involving racial stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination. Literature on confrontation suggests that addressing racism can be seen as a persuasive act that will allow for more effective interpersonal interactions. In this article, we explore the persuasive communication literature in the context of classroom education on the pervasiveness of racial bias. We examine some of the challenges instructors might face from students. Finally, we suggest strategies that might allow for a more effective classroom experience.
