This is a four-page pdf document worksheet. I use this worksheet when I start teaching my novel study for "In the Heat of the Night," though it is completely applicable to any unit involving social justice, racism, discrimination, et cetera. (For example, I also use it when I teach Harper Lee's "To Kill a Mockingbird" and John Wyndam's "The Chrysalids." I use this handout to ensure students have a working knowledge of the key terms: stereotype, racism, and prejudice. Along with the worksheet is an answer key explaining the terms and giving everyday examples.
Included here is a two-page summary selection of specific examples stereotypes / racism / prejudice taken from the novel, "In the Heat of the Night," (by John Ball). The worksheet does not need to be modified if you are teaching a different unit as it allows for any content area using those terms. You will simply grab examples from whatever text you are using instead of "In the Heat of the Night."
I find that spending the time with this worksheet is useful because students get a good grasp of the terms and their differences from the beginning of the unit, as well as have it in their binders throughout for easy access and review. Their writing similarly improves as they use the terms correctly rather than interchangeably.
This works extremely well with another of my products: PowerPoint Presentation (& Poster/Oral Project):
