This is a lesson that is good for students 9-12th grade.
Class can open with showing a Privilege Walk video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hD5f8GuNuGQ Students can then have an opportunity to participate in a Privilege Walk (see attachment from College Board) themselves. (I choose to have some of my classes close their eyes while participating then opening their eyes at the end for more honest responses).
Go over Discrimination Vocabulary (see attachment from College Board). Add define of micro aggressions: a subtle but offensive comment or action directed at a minority or other non-dominant group that is often unintentional or unconsciously reinforces a stereotype.
Play OPB radio broadcast talking to High School students about micro aggressions they hear at school. http://www.opb.org/news/article/microaggressions-clackamas-high-students/and /or show this video about micro aggressions https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8RfwnibEd3A
What can students do?
This Ted Talk video by Mellody Hobson challenges students to be Color Brave vs. Color Blind. https://www.ted.com/talks/mellody_hobson_color_blind_or_color_brave?language=en
What would you do if you saw someone being discriminated against? Show empathy vs sympathy video clip from Brene' Brown. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Evwgu369Jw
Show clips from ABC's What Would You Do?:
Interracial video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xtUczwcvqrU
Class discussion/feedback on videos and ask students what they would have done? Students can also talk or write about a time they stuck up for someone or choose to be a bystander. The class can brain storm ideas they can create a better learning environment/class/school/community.
You can end this lesson with a video about being more than just a label: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MBMt0xatNeM
