Understanding Stereotypes K9-12

Discovery Education is a website that specialises in providing resources
such as lesson plans for teachers. It also has learning resources for students
and parents. The website itself is both friendly and user-friendly and the
information provided is clear and concise.
The Lesson plan I decided to look at is about 'Understanding
Stereotypes'. While this is not specifically about immigration, it does tackle
factors involved such as racial stereotypes. The topic, which is set over three
days, investigates what stereotypes are, asks students to think of examples and
requires them to think about how stereotypes affect people.
While it doesn’t necessarily look at the history of immigration and
other important things, it could be used as an introduction to that kind of
sensitive subject.
