AFTER VIEWING: DEEPENING UNDERSTANDING
After showing the video, you might begin the discussion with a few general questions (for everyone or small groups). Here are some possibilities:
Be sure to give audience members time to process their initial reactions before moving on to discussing disparities. Allow a few minutes for individual responses and emotions then shift to broader issues and future action.
Lead one or more of these activities to loosen things up or underscore a lesson. Several are featured in the film: some are simple icebreakers to help people feel more comfortable, while others probe important concepts and help reveal hidden disparities. When to introduce them depends on your group’s level of understanding and the activity’s risk level (see tips for effective facilitation).
