By examining and making visible these stereotypes, we will start to understand how we mentally define and categorize people- making stereotypes visible is the first step to combating them.To make this simple, we’re going to do this on only 4 classes: Lower Class, Working Class, Middle Class, and Upper Class.
Exit Ticket- Choose one of the questions from your discussion to answer on an index card. Write me at LEAST 5 sentences in response to the question.
