This discussion brings me to the well known “Doll Test.” In the mid 1900s Kenneth and Mamie Clark did an experiment with dolls (of different shades) in which they asked children the race of the various dolls and which dolls they prefered. Surprisingly, and I’m not sure if this was expected, even the African American children preferred the white doll. Society has a way of saturating our minds with prejudices and stereotypes. Albert Bandura, a social learning theorist, states that “behavior is learned from the environment through the process of observational learning” (Bandura, 1977). In our reading this week we learned that the social learning theory “suggests that people develop prejudice and stereotypes about members of various groups in the same way they learn other attitudes, beliefs, and values". (Feldman, 2014).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
