  1. Jane Elliott’s approach is a tricky one. There’s no consensus on it. Many educators condemn it (it is rather brutal and manipulative, don’t you think… and no one really knows how far reaching are the results).

    I’ve experimented with a similar exercice (as the blue eyed/brown eyed), with a softer pedagogical approach, and I’m not too sure about the results either. I think more thought should be put in it, especially if one wants to “import” it to Lebanon.
    And it only tackles prejudice. It doesn’t really tackle fanaticism.

    What made you add this video over here?

  2. Nice one.
