Over 20 million people have seen the video of Prof Kelly interrupted by his children as he was talking about events in North Korea. The video could be a great way of talking about stereotypes in class. Here's what I'm thinking of doing:
So Try This Instead:
My guess: someone will mention (now that they are anonymous) that they thought the woman was his nanny.
This is a great opening for a discussion on stereotypes (mention that many people around the world saw her as a nanny) and the idea of deindividuation (when students are anonymous they're more likely to express potentially embarrassing points of view).
If you try this I'd love to hear how it goes in your class!
And just for a little humor as well as a tie-in to social roles: what if Kelly was a woman?

I think TodaysMeet could work for a variety of topics discussed in class if I am understanding the format/tool accurately. I will have to check it out!
Thanks for sharing.

I actually showed the video in class last week and we had a healthy conversation about schema, stereotypes, Eurocentric perspectives and more. I was actually very impressed and proud of my class for their thinking! Many people thought it was absurd to even consider the woman as a Nanny.
This is a great class activity that you have outlined here and I am curious to see what people think!
Have a great day!
