Dear teaching friends,
This Danish video, which was “viral” for a time, provides a great foundation for discussion about prejudice, stereotypes, and self-disclosure. In the beginning of the video, people are standing inside various “squares” according to criteria like occupation and socio-economic status. An announcer then begins to group them in other ways, showing the unexpected things they have in common with others.
It can be difficult to begin the discussion of prejudice and stereotypes. This engaging video provides a jumping-off point that students enjoy and find enlightening.
