Application Assignment: Looking Inward: Self-Interview – Part B
â€œSome people may find it hard to examine their social identities that connect them to unfair treatment of others (e.g, White mistreatment and economic exploitation of people of color). Even so, it is essential to becoming effective anti-bias educators that we examine each aspect of who we are, in order to understand fully how our identities influence how we relate to people todayâ€ (Derman-Sparks, 2010, p. 23). Thus, self-reflection is an essential aspect of you becoming an anti-bias educator and member of society. You cannot change something you are not actively conscious of or aware
Part A: Self-Interview
Using the questions listed in this weekâ€™s â€œPower, Privilege, and Prejudice Self-Reflection Instrument,â€ conduct an audio- or video-recorded self-interview.
Note: you will not be asked to share this recording with your co-learners or Instructor, but you will be asked to write about what you learned about yourself, and in part to use the experience as a means of selecting a topic to focus on throughout the course. During Week 8, you will also be asked to refer to this recording, so be certain to retain a copy of your recording.
Part B: Written Reflection
Write a reflection paper in response to the following questions:
What did you learn about yourself from this self-interview? Did any of your answers surprise you? Is so, which ones and why? If not, why not?
What patterns emerged about your own learned biases or potential areas of discomfort from this weekâ€™s self-interview and last week’s application assignment?
What one learned bias stands out as one you should focus on during this course? Why did this area stand out for you? In what ways does it relate to the ism or ismâ€™s you wrote about in last week’s application assignment?
In what ways have you been socialized to feel the way you do with regard to this bias?
In what ways do your body language, verbal interactions, and/or other actions communicate your bias in covert or overt ways?
