Immediate Reactions to Video
As you watch the videos, keep a pen and a pad of paper handy, and jot down notes on the following: What are your
immediate reactions and thoughts about the people featured in the video? Make sure to write down these notes as you
are watching the video, in order to capture your immediate reactions and thoughts. Also, make sure not to self-censor, or
to sugarcoat your reactions and thoughts, based on political or cultural expectations.
Written Reflection
After watching the video, look at the notes you took on your immediate reactions and thoughts about the people featured
in the video. Now, write a minimum 500-word paper on your reflection. Include the following elements in your reflection

to describe your immediate reactions to the people featured in the video. What did you learn about them? What
did you learn about the demographic featured in the video, and what did you learn about the individuals featured
in the video? (Be sure not to self-censor. Be honest as you describe your reactions.)
4. What I Learned about Myself: Now, take a second look at the notes you jotted down while watching the video.
What did you learn about yourself, as you reflect on the immediate reactions you had to the people featured in the
video? How did this video challenge you, or prompt you to test any of your own assumptions or biases? (Again,
be careful not to self-censor Be honest.)
5. Applying this Learning to My Leadership: How does what you learned about the people featured in the video
impact your own approach as a current or aspiring leader? How does what you learned about yourself impact
your role as a leader? In other words, how will you incorporate what you learned—about the people in the video
and about yourself—into your leadership approach?
