Description

In this lesson, from the New York Times Learning Network, students critically examine the portrayal of minorities in video games and other forms of entertainment to assess whether or not these portrayals further perpetuate racial stereotyping. Students participate in a round-table discussion and maintain a "minorities in the media" viewing log.
