Happy New Year to you and your family! As the new year begins, I want to take a moment to reflect on the past year and be thankful for all of the blessings.

High School Resources
The Circles activity engages participants in a process of identifying what they consider to be the most important dimensions of their own identity, concurrently developing a deeper understanding of stereotypes as participants share stories about when they were proud to be part of a particular group and when it was especially hurtful to be associated with a particular group.

Critical thinking about all media and information is an essential aspect of multicultural learning. Test your students' understanding of race, gender, and socioeconomic class with these quizzes, leading seamlessly into a dialogue on stereotypes, misinformation, and prejudices and how they inform teaching and learning.  (from the Multicultural Pavilion)
This activity helps individuals explore how they first became conscious of prejudice and discrimination and the feelings associated with it and makes participants aware that everyone has experienced prejudice and discrimination and that it comes in a variety of forms, not just racial.

By thinking about the intersections of whites, blacks, and others around the blues, students will deepen their understanding of discrimination and prejudice. They will also come to understand the ways in which music can, or cannot, create opportunities for people of different cultures, and with varying degrees of power, to relate to one another and find common ground.
