The experiment I chose is called "A Class Divided" by Jane Elliot. This experiment was
conducted in an Iowa classroom in the year 1968 and was based on discrimination. Jane Elliot's
renowned experiment was propelled by the death of Martin Luther King Jr. and how he inspired
the lives of millions of individuals across the world. Jane Elliot decided one day that she would
separate the brown-eyed pupils from her blue-eyed pupils in her 3
rd
grade class. On the primary
day, she decided to name the blue-eyed pupils as being more prevalent and the brown-eyed
pupils as minority with minimal privileges. She debilitated the pupils from interfacing and chose
individual understudies to stretch the negative attributes of the kids in the minority gathering.
What this activity signified was that the kids' conduct changed immediately. According to the
experiment the blue-eyed pupils performed better scholastically and even started tormenting their
minority classmates. The minority gathering experienced lower self-assurance and more terrible
scholastic execution. The following day, she decided she would switch the two gatherings and
the blue-eyed understudies were now the minority. This experiment lead to the blue-eyed pupils
being so relieved that they embraced their minority classmates and the two concurred that
individuals ought not be judged in view of their appearances. This exercise is still used till this
day.
