Share your experience: Has there ever been a time when you have felt “othered”? Or, have you ever noticed someone you know “othering” an individual or group of people? Maybe you’ve seen a movie or read a book that you realize “others” someone in some way. Explain what happened and why you think things happened that way. What do you think could be done to avoid this kind of thing happening again?
