PSY 360 Excelsior College Experiencing Discrimination Discussion

I’m working on a Psychology exercise and need support.

M5D1: Experiencing Discrimination

No unread replies.No replies.

Eye color. Boy with brown eyes and boy with blue eyes side by side. Eye colour is an inherited trait influenced by more than one gene (polygenic). It is determined by the amount and type of pigments present in the eye's iris. It was once thought that brown was always dominant and blue recessive, though the fact that two blue- eyed parents can give birth to a brown-eyed child has shown that determination of eye colour does not follow the rules of Mendelian inheritance.Introduction to the Activity
The following videos show an experiment on the effect of prejudice in a very unique way. Even though the creator of the exercise was not a psychologist, many aspects of her experimentation can be applied to prejudice and discrimination psychological principles.

Answer the following questions:

  • Describe at least two concepts or theories about prejudice that Jane Elliott utilizes. Justify how you think these concepts are being used with her technique.
  • What was your overall opinion of Ms. Elliott’s methods?
  • Do you think she is successfully reducing prejudice in the most effective manner? Why or why not?
  • In your discussion, please include a personal example of an experience with prejudice and whether you think this method (or another) could have been used to change attitudes.
