You need:

  • 15-20 minutes
  • 1-25 persons (no limit)


Instructions (Step-by-Step)

  • This task is an individual exercise – each learner should do it by themself.
  • Ask your learners to take a seat and think about equality and how they face it in everyday life. Ask them the following questions and pause after each, so that they have time to reflect.
    • Think about how equality is presented in the (social)media.
    • How do influencers or television represent integration, equality and tolerance?
    • Can you think of any positive examples?
    • Why do you think, they are positive examples or maybe even role models?
    • Do you think it is important to represent topics around equality in a medial context?
    • What impact has the representations on the people?
    • How does your medial presence influence the people around you and how could you make a change?
  • If the learners want to, you can discuss their opinions after the exercise. Be careful to guide the learners towards a tolerant and empathic outcome of the discussion. It is also absolutely okay to not share opinions and keep the take-away of the reflection exercise to oneself.
