PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This TED Talk lesson is intended to be used with Vernā Myers' TED Talk, "How to Overcome Our Biases? Walk Boldly Toward Them."

From TED:
Our biases can be dangerous, even deadly — as we've seen in the cases of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and Eric Garner, in Staten Island, New York. Diversity advocate Vernā Myers looks closely at some of the subconscious attitudes we hold toward out-groups. She makes a plea to all people: Acknowledge your biases. Then move toward, not away from, the groups that make you uncomfortable. In a funny, impassioned, important talk, she shows us how.

This lesson is appropriate for high school-level Current Events, Social Issues, Psychology, Sociology, Social Psychology, Social Studies, English, Life Skills, or Health courses. This lesson can be used as a mini-lesson or as a supplement to units covering the following topics: stereotyping, prejudice, discrimination, race relations, diversity, tolerance, etc. It is recommended that time is allotted after the lesson for class discussion.

The link to the TED Talk is included in the lesson and can be easily found online. This lesson is "prep-free" and ready-to-go.

****This TED lesson is also part of a 14-Lesson TED Bundle****
