Facing discrimination

In this learning path learners:

  • Explore the function and process of discrimination, on both the interpersonal and societal levels.
  • Discuss specific incidents of antigypsyism, antisemitism, discrimination against LGBT+ and Muslims, and racism, using as a starting point the thoughts and experiences of five young people.
  • Gain insight into the terms used to describe different forms of discrimination.
  • Are challenged to reflect on who has influence in situations where discrimination occurs and what they themselves would advise in a particular case.

They will work with a model called the ‘Discrimination machine’. This breaks down aspects of discrimination: how we see ‘other people’, how grouping and judging people is part of discrimination and what the effects of discrimination are.

This includes tips and extra information per track

This learning path consists of three tracks (lessons), each with a number of steps.

Track 1: Learners hear Medine’s story and use the ‘discrimination machine’ to understand how discrimination works. They then select one of five stories to work with, to deepen their knowledge of the process of discrimination. The track ends with a discussion about what – and who – plays a role in discriminatory situations.

Track 2: The experiences of the same five young people are used for a deeper look at the terms antigypsyism, antisemitism, discrimination against LGBT+, discrimination against Muslims and racism. After working on descriptions of these terms, the learners engage in a mobile chat-style conversation about a particular situation, in which they are asked to give advice.

Track 3: Learners are given the opportunity to consider factors that affect how they judge a situation where someone is being treated differently. Looking at drawings of five scenarios from everyday life, they exchange opinions and consider why we don’t always agree on the significance of an act or remark.

Learners require approximately 100 minutes for each track and about 50 minutes for track 3.
