Resources for One Book One LCC 2015-16 - The True American

Discussion Questions

We all have stereotypes.  Where do you think they come from?  Why do we have them?  How do we change them?

What shapes our views of other people?  Parents?  Experience?  Media?

Think about television shows and movies you watch - are there stereotypes that you see repeated?  What types - gender, race, ethnicity?

How powerful is the media in shaping how we see the world and others?
