This powerpoint is intended for high schoolers, and it is focused on the broad topic of bias. The slides include a definition of bias, a reflection on what bias means to them, types of bias, and examples/scenarios that demonstrate what each type might look and sound like. This ppt file is editable to fit your unique needs, and the download includes a doc and pdf of the step-by-step lesson plan.
By the end of this lesson, your students should be able to :
· Define bias
· Identify five types of bias
· Reflect on their own biases
Note: This ppt slideshow can be be taught in-person or within a distance-learning model. The only slight modification you would have if implementing this lesson virtually, is that for the pair-and-share in the beginning, you would need to separate small groups in a virtual breakout space (on whatever platform you are using). If it is easier and/or more conducive to time, you can also ask for them to share their thoughts in the chat and/or aloud to the whole group.
Note: Students will need a writing utensil as well as a journal and/or blank piece of paper during this lesson. There is a short journal prompt towards the beginning that they will need to respond to, and it is highly recommended that they take notes during the slides.
