Lesson Plan

Problem Solving on the Job

The truth is there are consequences for actions. The third lesson in the "Problem Solving Module" asks class members to brainstorm a list of problems, select one and invent a system, process, or object that might solve the problem. They debrief the activity by considering the possible consequences of their inventions. Next, participants apply their learned techniques to examples of discrimination alleged in news and magazine articles. Groups offer solutions to these problems and then consider the consequences of these solutions.
