Description:

 

Stereotype: a widely held but fixed and oversimplified image or idea of a particular type of person or thing.

 

What are the stereotypes surrounding Latinx Americans? Is there any truth to them? Are there positive, as well as, negative, stereotypes? If so, how can a positive stereotype have a negative effect? How are these stereotypes created? What effect do stereotypes have on how Latinxs are perceived by others and how they perceive themselves?

This workshop includes multimedia and performances of spoken word poetry.


Purpose:

 

Stereotyping Latinxs encourages students to understand and deconstruct harmful stereotypes; examining the role stereotypes play in their personal lives and society at large.

 


CATEGORIES: POLITICS, CURRENT EVENTS, DISCUSSION
