MV Teens Debunk Stereotyping

 

MV Teens debunking stereotypes during pre-teen night

During Mount Vernon’s Pre-Teen Night this week, Teen Members and 6th graders defined the chain of assumptions that lead to stereotyping and stereotypes. They also had to create new assumptions that challenge the stereotypes. Members played a competitive game in which they follow a “chain” of assumptions that lead to stereotyped thinking. They then take apart the “chain” to see the flaws in their thinking.
