What you need: Flipchart Pens (enough for one each) Blu-tac 4x flipchart each with one of the following headings: Police Chavs Grebs Criminals (use other groups in society if you wish) Running the exercise: 1. Stick up the headed flipcharts around the room and give each group member a flipchart pen. 2. Ask the group to go to each of the flipcharts and note down their initial thoughts about the person/group on the heading, the things they believe about this group, the things they have said about this group or things they have heard other people say about this group. It may be useful for the tutors to write on some examples to guide them. 3. If there are people who have literacy difficulties make sure the tutors are around to help them or write for them. 4. Once everyone has had the opportunity to write on each flipchart ask them to return to their seats and hand in the flipchart pens. NOTE: This activity is continued at activity 2.3. Learning points: We all hold stereotypical beliefs about certain groups Exercise 2.2: Assumptions I make. Time: 10 minutes. Tutor notes: What’s it all about? The exercise aims to build on the previous exercise focusing on the consequences of making assumptions about people/groups. It highlights 149

the dangers of making assumptions as people and situations can be misinterpreted. What you need: THINK DVD: ‘Assumptions I make’ clip DVD Player/TV or Laptop and projector NOTE: It s useful to be familiar with the DVD clip prior to running the exercise. Running the exercise: 1. Explain to the group that they are going to watch a DVD clip. Explain to them that the clip will be paused at certain parts throughout and questions will be asked for them to answer. 2. Play the DVD clip which will need to be paused at 19 seconds, 26 seconds, 41 seconds and 51 seconds. 3. Pause at 19 seconds and ask the group what they believe is happening. Ask them to consider what the gang were discussing and what the character in the ‘hoodie’ is going to do. Make sure everyone has the chance to make comment. 4. Resume with the clip and again stop at 26 seconds. At this point ask the group for their reactions. Ask them what they think the character in the ‘hoodie’ is likely to do next (is he going to steal the ladies handbag) is it different to what they assumed might happen? Do they have views on what may happen next? 5. Resume the dvd and pause again at 40 seconds. Ask what they think the young man is doing at the back of the store? At this point ask group members to share how they think the DVD clip will end. Keep a note of the responses.

    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.
