If you consider your sister to be talkative and you are the quiet type, instead of being irritated by her, get her to help you with your prepared oral next time!

In other words, try to learn from the strengths of others.

How do your class groups allow for this? Who are YOU in the “zoo”?

3. Prejudice

No matter where you are born, everyone starts out as a baby. No matter how rich or poor you are, how short or tall, powerful or humble, everyone finally dies.

All men are born equal, but are they treated equally?

Take a look at Denver and Jason. The punch-line makes you think, doesn’t it? How did you (and I) become prejudiced? We were not born prejudiced. So how did it happen?

. You have had the opportunity to get to know a number of people in your class, both boys and girls. Write a humorous piece entitled “VIVE LA DIFFERENCE!” to celebrate gender differences.

LO 2.4.7 LO 2.4.8

Rate your openness to diversity in each of the following categories. Are you a shunner, tolerator or celebrator?

Shunner Tolerator Celebrator
Dress
Age
Religion
Gender
Race
LO 3.8.3

Right, let us put your brain into gear!

As a group, do a PNI analysis of DIVERSITY. A what?

P = POSITIVE facts

N = NEGATIVE facts

I = INTERESTING facts

LO 5.1.4

If we cannot end our differences, at least we can make the world safe for diversity.

JF Kennedy

Using the information about diversity, synergy and prejudice that you have gathered so far, hold a class debate on the quote by JF Kennedy.

LO 2.4.1

The following poem by an unknown source tells the sad tale of what happens when people pre-judge one another:

The cold within

Six humans trapped by happenstance, in bleak and bitter cold,

Each one possessed a stick of wood, or so the story’s told.

Their dying fire in need of logs, the first man held his back,

For of the faces ‘round the fire, he noticed one was black.

The next man looking ‘cross the way saw one not of his church,

And couldn’t bring himself to give the fire his stick of birch.

The third one sat in tattered clothes, he gave his coat a hitch,

Why should his log be put to use to warm the idle rich?

The rich man just sat back and thought of the wealth he had in store,

And how to keep what he had earned from the lazy, shiftless poor.

The black man’s face bespoke revenge as the fire passed from sight,

For all he saw in his stick of wood was a chance to spite the white.

The last man of this forlorn group did naught except for gain,

Giving only to those who gave was how he played the game.
