Learning Goals and Assessments
- Students will collaboratively apply the concepts of biological and colorblind racisms to real-life examples.
- Students will evaluate and produce responses to racist statements they may encounter in their everyday lives.
- In groups, students will identify statements presented in the chat stations as either biological racism or one of Bonilla-Silva’s four frames of colorblind racism and record their responses on a worksheet.
- Students will anonymously submit their potential responses to racist statements either through Socrative, PollEverywhere, or on index cards.
