Lesson Challenging Assumptions About Others

Facing History and Ourselves offers a lesson that challenges students’ assumptions with curiosity. In the lesson, students practice being thoughtful about fellow citizens’ values, identities, and perspectives by reflecting on a video featuring voices of young people from across the country. The lesson, which takes two 50-minute class periods, is designed to help students move beyond the assumptions they may make about others and become more perceptive, thoughtful, and curious about their fellow citizens. It can serve as a preliminary step in a project that engages students in dialogue with young people in other schools and regions.
