Reflecting on stereotypes, bias and preconceived ideas

By Bénédicte Brouder

Black History Month Celebration: reflecting on bias, stereotypes and preconceived ideas

Ms. Aseltine and Ms. Addo organized a whole middle school forum on February 14, 2019 on the theme of stereotypes, bias, and preconceived ideas. Students were invited to work in groups of 5 or 6, and tasked with the objective of producing a collective drawing of what a “social loser” and a “social winner” are. After 20 minutes of teamwork, all students gathered in a full assembly, and discussed two drawings. The drawings were an opportunity to reflect on bias of judging people upon their appearance, and how we assess others through the filters of assumptions based on preconceived representations.
