Pre-Reading for Self-Fulfilling Stereotypes

Goal: Complete pre-reading activities for our next unit on stereotypes.

  1. Read
  2. Quick write in your English Journal
  3. Pre-reading with your partner

In a few sentences explain how you would describe a party you attended to a close friend.
In a few more sentences explain how you would describe the same party to a much older relative.
What's the difference in your descriptions? Why are they different?

Find the article I have shared with you in your Google Drive called "Stereotypes Reading" (Hint: Look in "Shared with me.")
With your partner discuss and answer the questions at the top of the document, part 1 and part 2.

Tomorrow you and your partner will be reading this article using the "Say Something" protocol we have used before. I will be at a conference. You can email me if you have questions.
