Combatting Stereotypes - Ecuador through the Lens
The lesson focuses on understanding the stereotypes within different cultures.
The lesson plan divides the students in groups to look at photos of each of the characters in the film Que Tan Lejos and describe them.
After watching clips of three occasions where one could see the stereotyping in Ecuador, divide the students in groups and discuss and compare what they wrote before they saw the clips. Students will be asked to discuss situations where they have seen stereotyping using the few phrases on the PowerPoint and allow them to come up with some of their own. They will have to write a paragraph describing the incident.
Students will learn about stereotypes. Students will discuss stereotypes in an open forum.
