Quick activity Can you guess some of the different divisions within society? For example: Age What other groups are there in which we are pigeonholed into?
What is diversity? Diversity: Are the range of human differences, including but not limited to race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, social class, physical ability or attributes, religious or ethical values system, national origin, and political beliefs (attributes). Social Divisions: The dividing groups in society. Tend to be based on Ethnicity, gender, class, physical abilities, learning abilities and age.
Race VS Ethnicity Task: Anyone filled out an ethnicity form before? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RKBrmDf QfWE 3.18 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RKBrmDf QfWE Feedback If you would like to share What is your ethnicity then?
But why is there a confusion over Race and ethnicity?? A bit of history: Colonisation for wealth and cheap labour force
Labour force Started with slavery: Physical characteristics were used to distinguish between social groups- led to term ‘ Race’ Was highlighted again after the world wars and whereby a manual labour force was needed as women were encouraged to have babies – Mass immigration ‘Race’ grouping table- started with 4
However… Jobs tended to be: Low paid- better for owners ‘dirty industrial’ jobs Manual Whilst majority group became socially mobile low paid jobs led to most new migrants residing in poorer areas, having poorer education, worse health etc.
Identity group identity and perceived behaviours began to be associated with certain groups. Some were already there from Slavery. We have recently witnessed this with Muslims
The change to ethnicity 1991 From 1971 onwards, it became unsatisfactory to label people in terms of ‘race’ as new generations were being born which were British. Hence needed to establish a more CULTURAL definition For example- British but lives in a Indian Culture
The groups were: White Black – Caribbean Black-African Black –Other (please specify) Bangladeshi Pakistani Indian Chinese Any other ethnic group. Q: anything wrong with the above classifications?
End of lesson Task Pass the buck! NEXT LESSON: Recap on terminology including stereotypes, prejudice, and discrimination Look at the implications of ethnicity as a social division
Ethnicity: Social Divisions Lesson two: 09/09/14
Recap on last week What did we do last week
Outcomes Must – be able to define Ethnicity from a sociological perspective Should- give examples of ethnic divides in health, housing, education and police Could - be able to analyse with examples the implications of social divisions in ethnicity (OC 1.2)
PLAN Stereotypes Prejudice Discrimination Ethnicity and health Ethnicity and housing Finding your own evidence – police, education
Activity one Stereotypes- Prejudice- discrimination Ethnic minorities tend to have: Poorer health outcomes Poorer paid jobs- Socially inhabited Police and violence related issues
Implications of social divisions: Health activity: Postnote and activity Less access to health facilities? o Q: do these social groups choose to be divided?
Other ethnicity and health figures Infant mortality is 100% higher among the children of African – Caribbean or Pakistani mothers than among children of white mothers Pakistani and Bangladeshi people are five times more likely to be diagnosed with diabetes and have 50% higher chance of coronary disease than white people.
Why? Difference in care of pregnant women – White ladies more likely to take vitamins Tolerance to certain foods in comparison to immigrants?
