Bias is defined as a particular tendency, trend, inclination, feeling, or opinion, especially one that is preconceived or unreasoned. All people have bias in favor of some things and against some things. That is alright as long as it doesn’t lead to prejudice or discrimination against people that have different beliefs. Bias against Native American people in the United States has been a very harmful aspect of our history and has had a negative impact upon Native Americans. This lesson focuses on the concept of bias and helps students to analyze materials to look for examples of bias in today’s world.

The Scarecrow (Animated Short)
Rating
0.0 stars

This is an animated short that functions as both a persuasive text warning consumers about the dangers of factory-produced food and a commercial for Chipotle Mexican Grill. In the video, our central character, a scarecrow, realizes the horrors of factory produced food products and can no longer work for the food corporation. The scarecrow decides to start a new food business afresh - producing foods made from fresh, sustainable ingredients.This wordless animation requires students to infer the author's central message and purpose, find evidence to support their ideas, and discuss the role of characterization and setting in the theme. Please note: this is a primary text resource. Guidelines for implementation in the classroom can be found in the "Guidance for Teachers in Using this Resource" section.

Students learn about archives and primary sources as they research original historical documents. While preparing an imaginative first-person account as if witnessing an historical event, they learn to appreciate the value of the first-person, eye-witness account and understand its limitations. Note: The literacy activities for the Mechanics unit are based on physical themes that have broad application to our experience in the world — concepts of rhythm, balance, spin, gravity, levity, inertia, momentum, friction, stress and tension.
