A Classic Classroom Experiment

This is an incredibly thought provoking experiment done many years ago in Iowa. I think the most fascinating part of watching this now is thinking about if and how this would be different in our day and age. What experiences do students have to draw on that would allow us to take this further? What problems arise? In what ways does this possibly oversimplify or reduce the experience of discrimination in our time and in their? How could a 21st century language teacher possibly take this lesson further? What new lessons can our students teach us?
