Video Program Helps Overcome Differences

Flash Judgments: Exploring Our Attitudes Toward Differences is a video-based training program aimed at middle and high school students and staff. The program uses a flash camera metaphor and challenges the judgments people make upon first meeting someone. Faces of different students are shown and the viewer is asked to give an immediate impression of that person. The backgrounds of the students are then explained and the students tell about themselves. Included are a 24 minute video, leader's guide, photocopy masters of participant's workbooks and a pack of 26 flashcards for classroom use. The program is designed to last about 2 hours.
