*Activities for Teaching About Bystanders, Racism, Stereotyping, Discrimination, and Prejudices*
*This is a great pre-reading activity to introduce your students to the topic of tolerance, prejudices and stereotyping. It also teaches your students the role of a bystander and how important it is to be an active bystander.
*This product includes a ditto that introduces the terms of a victim, bystander and oppressor, and an activity follows in identifying these people in different situations.
*The next ditto introduces students to stereotypes and how harmful they can be to someone. This truly educates students at being very careful of the words that come out of their mouth.
*The last ditto introduces discrimination, scapegoating and prejudices. I included a key for all these words.
*I use this activity to introduce The Diary of Anne Frank, but it can be used to introduce any unit that deals with these themes. It can be used in Social Studies or to introduce a topic or unit.
*Before I give the students these activities, I read, “The Terrible Things” with them. This is a fabulous allegory that teaches others that if they don’t take a stand, how dangerous a situation can become. You can find this story online as a PDF.
