Grade 8

Cultural and aesthetic prejudice

Module 10

Pamphlets, role models and playlets

Activity 1:

Project: creating a pamphlet

[lo 4.2]

It is time to put some of your learning to the test!

In your group, compile a pamphlet which you feel can be handed out to parents, giving the views of the youth on:

How to teach Your Children to be Non-prejudiced

1: Interview your parents: Ask them what they understand by prejudice.

2: Ask them to give you some examples of prejudice.

3: Bring your replies back to your group and compile a list of answers.

4: Give solutions to the problems they listed.

5: Have a look at your material and see how you will structure your pamphlet, so that all the information is included in an interesting way

6: You may wish to add a few examples and solutions of your own.

7: Select colours that you wish to use for your pamphlet.

8: Design an interesting cover for your pamphlet.

9: Do the layout of your other information in the most attractive and interesting way.

10: Now present the pamphlet to your class. Explain your planning to the class too.

Activity 2:

A look at qualities to admire in role models

[lo 5.1.6]

  • Decide which of the next qualities you admire: Tick your choice. Cross what you do not admire.

HOPE, FEAR, LOVE, DOUBT, DESPAIR, ANXIETY, CHARITY, PREJUDICE, IGNORANCE,

KNOWLEDGE, UNDERSTANDING, MISUNDERSTANDINGS, LACK OF INFORMATION, UNWILLINGNESS TO CHANGE

  • Explain WHY you like those qualities you ticked and WHY you dislike the qualities you crossed.
  • Say what sort of qualities in a person you admire most.
  • Give the names of THREE people who act as role-models for you and say WHY.

By now you will have realized that prejudice comes from ignorance and lives with fear . And equally, a well-balanced view comes from knowledge , having a good example set for you of fairness, kindness and understanding . So, the way to overcome prejudice is to gain knowledge about the thing that you are prejudiced against and so to lose the fear.

It is fair to say that well armed with facts , you are better equipped to make a decision about qualities that you like. You should learn to read between the lines and beyond the lines.

Learn to make decisions based on accurate information (not on emotion, fear or ignorance).

That seems fair. Right. Just.

Activity 3:

Answer questions on playlets

[lo 5.1.6]

  • Study the following short playlets:
  • Answer the questions on each playlet; and see if you have picked up on the fairness / unfairness of the different situations.

PLAYLETS ILLUSTRATING HOW MISUNDERSTANDINGS ARISE:

NOTE: The scenes are written in play-form dialogue .

Notice the following:

1. New speaker; new line.

2. Leave a line open between speakers.

3. NO inverted commas!

Scenario 1

Remember: The use of words creates attitudes, reactions, expectations.

We are so sensitive sometimes that a tone in a voice or a look can convey a message which we do not accept. Then a discussion gets out of hand. e.g. John and Jill are talking to each other.

John : Let’s go out tonight.

Jill : Why? What is wrong with my house?
