教學目的 In this lesson, students will participate in an activity designed to simulate the inequity of environmental racism. Students will explore the concept of environmental racism through their own experience of fairness, and help them grasp the injustice of this practice.
教學內容 Instructor chooses a card randomly from a box/bag containing a class number of cards - half are blue, and half are red. For ex. Class is 24 students: 12 red cards, 12 blue cards. Instruct all the students with a red card to give their garbage to a person with a blue card over the course of the school day. Hand out garbage bags to all blue card holders. The blue card holders will carry the garbage bag with them at all times for half the school day, and use it to collect their own garbage and any garbage from any red card holder. Explain that the people with blue cards have to live with this garbage even though they didn't create it. The class might protest and say things like, "That's not fair," "You're playing favorites," or they might ask "Why?" You can tell them, "Just because." Towards midday, students journal about their experiences. What happened? How did people behave? How did you behave and feel? After journaling, the roles are reversed - everyone who has a garbage bag gives it to someone holding a red card. Towards end of the day, tell everyone to give you back the cards and garbage bags. Repeat journaling then facilitate discussion. Go around the room and ask how the exercise made the class feel. Let everyone air their feelings and explain that just as some kids were forced to take garbage they didn't make simply because the luck of the draw gave them a red/blue card, in real life, sometimes people are treated unfairly because of where they live or the color of their skin. Ask if your students know words for this. Depending on the age, they might offer terms like, racism, discrimination and prejudice. Explain that certain neighborhoods are more likely to suffer from issues such as pollution, garbage and other environmental problems. Often this is because of unfair practices. This can include putting dumps and landfills in poor or minority areas where people might not be on the committees that make the decisions about where a dump should go, or where new immigrants might not speak English and won't be consulted about developments in their community.
