This handout accompanies Ms. Jane Elliott’s “Brown Eyes, Blue Eyes” Experiment from 1970. This experiment can be found in video form on YouTube. This experiment shows an elementary school teacher teaching her students about prejudice. Her class is made up of all white students, therefore, she "discriminates" by the color of their eyes. On the first day, she says blue-eyed students are better than brown-eyed students. On the second day, she says brown-eyed students are better than blue. They instantly show signs of discrimination after only a few minutes. This is a great experiment to show before teaching lessons on discrimination. The handout keeps students on track while watching the film clip. It also serves as a discussion starter.
