George Floyd Memorial Racial Bias Teach-In
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
0.0 stars

The resource is a learning module that contains a three-part curriculum about the social psychology of racial bias and biased policing. It includes several TEDx lecture videos, textbook and primary source article readings, journals and written assignments for reflection, and resources for acting for social justice. It can generate a certificate of completion after the parts are marked as reviewed and reflection papers submitted.

It is currently available in Blackboard and Canvas LMS versions. We are working on a Google Docs version. If you would like to import it and adapt it for another LMS, and want to contribute to this project, please let me know and we'll get you added to the project.

It was inspired by my university releasing the university from work in honor of the George Floyd memorials. I created it as an extra credit opportunity, but could be integrated in the psychology curriculum when teaching about stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination.

In this 3½-hour workshop, learners assess the reliability and credibility of online resources. They explore how misinformation and fake news can distort our biases and perspectives, ultimately making it difficult for us to be objective in the selection of resources as aids to both effective learning and informed civic action and decision-making.

Students will:
 Define misinformation and fake news and how it can affect personal biases and perspectives.
 Discover how to mitigate bias when searching for and surfing information online.
 Use best practices to authenticate sources of credible and reliable information:
o Find and verify the original source
o Check other sources
o Use fact-checking tools

Suitable for Grades 11 and 12
