A Class Divided 1. What features did Elliott ascribe to the superior and inferior groups and how did those characteristics reflect stereotypes about blacks and whites? 2. It's easy to understand why third-graders might not refuse to obey their teacher, but when the exercise is done with the prison guards, why don't any of the adults object? 3. At recess, two of the boys from different groups get in a fight. Elliott asks the one who was teased if responding with violence made him feel better or made the teasing stop. What does the answer suggest about the use of violence as a political strategy? During the Civil Rights Movement, who was using violence for political purposes and why? 4. How did the negative and positive labels placed on a group become self-fulfilling prophecies?
