Over the past couple years I have created a course called the Psychology of Prejudice that I teach to undergraduate students at Georgia Highlands College. The goal of this course is to focus on psychological theories and research in order to better understand the nature of prejudice and discrimination. The course explores cases of discrimination based on gender, race/ethnicity, class, age, religion, sexual orientation and physical ability, their causes and ways to decrease prejudice. Below are videos of some amazing students final projects in which they were given the task of creating a presentation that proved a specific stereotype wrong. The audio is not the best in some of them but you should be able to follow with the slides. Thank you so much to my wonderful students: Kaleigh Camp, Michael Orr, Rosa Sanchez and Randy Smith for creating such powerful presentations.
