I find that most students,even adults seem to feed a perceived presence online which they think might make them "more accepted" in society. What if they were opened up to the idea of bridging this notion and been exposed to a diverse set of adults in society including individuals of different cultures, abilities and standards of living.

Their assignment could consist of challenging a prevalent stereotype in society,do research on any one individual who broke a certain common stereotype and present their journey to the class in an attempt to develop the notion of "think twice before judging" They can use a variety of online portals and search bars to find these stories,maybe try and communicate with them in an effective manner to trace their journey.
