Dont forget to bring your answers to class on March 15 

  1. What scene or scenes do you think you'll still remember a month from now and why those scenes?
  2. What did the children's body language indicate about the impact of discrimination?
  3. How did the negative and positive labels placed on a group become self-fulfilling prophecies?
  4. What features did Elliott ascribe to the superior and inferior groups
    and how did those characteristics reflect stereotypes about blacks and
    whites?
  5. How did Elliott's discrimination create no-win situations for those
    placed in the inferior group? How did she selectively interpret
    behavior to confirm the stereotypes she had assigned?
  6. In the prison seminar, one of the white women asserts that all people
    face some kind of discrimination. Another woman challenges her,
    claiming that whites can't really know what it's like to face
    discrimination every minute of every day. What do you think?
  7. Both Elliott and her former students talk about whether or not this
    exercise should be done with all children. What do you think? If the
    exercise could be harmful to children, as Elliott suggests, what do you
    think actual discrimination might do?
