Examples of topics to write about
(Choose only one topic from the examples below OR choose a topic of your interest that pertains to this week’s material):
Cultural Mosaic or Melting Pot?
Discuss how a cultural mosaic celebrates cultural differences, while a melting pot tries to ignore cultural differences. Both ideologies can be viewed as efforts to reduce discrimination, but, the cultural mosaic approach is more successful. As an example, Canada utilizes a cultural mosaic metaphor, while the United States utilizes a melting pot metaphor.
Finding Yourself Acting Prejudiced
Discuss how even people with egalitarian views who consider themselves not to be prejudiced can find themselves sometimes acting in ways that might be perceived as prejudiced. This might occur for majority group members if they are unaware that the norms they endorse as majority members are perceived by minority members as discriminatory.
Discuss the outcome of stereotype threat. If individuals become anxious when reminded of their stereotype, they may disidentify with the domain. For example, women may disidentify from science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers because of subtle indicators that they may not perform as well as men. In what ways might educators contribute to stereotype threat inadvertently by unconsciously favoring males in STEM classes? What is your belief that self-fulfilling prophecies can maintain stereotypes?
People face the reality of needing to control, at least to some extent, their prejudicial biases and stereotypic assumptions about out-groups. Imagine that on the first day at college you move into the dorm room and meet your roommate. He/she is of a different race and cultural norms, and your internal attitudes say that you should not be prejudiced. Will you be able to set aside any prejudices you might have and avoid stereotyping? Are there any indications of prejudice that you may not be able to control? (How far you sit from the roommate, eye contact, facial expressions, etc.?) If you are not able to control some indications of discrimination, the roommate may pick up on these subtle behaviors and feel uncomfortable. How can you stop the cycle of bias?
