prejudice in everyday life 2014, Mary E. Kite, PhD, Ball State University- search
Objective: To explain a recent news event using a social psychological theory of stereotyping, prejudice, or discrimination.
Task is to discuss how theory from text or lecture can explain a recent news event.
The event must have occurred within the last three months and must be “news.” It cannot be
a) a sports article;
b) a human interest story;
c) an editorial or blog post;
d) a Twitter, Facebook, or other social media post.
It should be an actual article of at least a page such as: the local school or town paper, the New York Times, CNN.com, MSNBC.com, or Foxnews.com.
Your paper should focus on how well you applied the theory to the topic. It does not matter which theory you apply as long as you make a logical argument and apply the theory correctly.
Do not choose an article that already clearly labels an event as prejudice or discrimination (e.g., a court case describing gender discrimination or an article that already uses a theory to explain an act of prejudice and discrimination).
Choose an article that focuses on a social group that is covered in the text. So, for example, focus on race/ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation, disability status, national origin, etc.
Be careful not to simply summarize the article. You should spend your time explaining how the theory applies, not on the content of the article. The summary of the article should not be more than 1 paragraph.
Do not just label an event (or mention the theory) and leave it at that. You must point out why it occurred and which theory of discrimination applies.
Focus on one theory. Many theories may be relevant, but you should choose the one theory you believe best explains the event and stick with it.
The goal of this paper is to look at theories about stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination and how they might apply in everyday life.
Be sure to attach a copy of the article to your paper or the url linking to the article.
