BEFORE you watch the film, write down, for yourself,  your answers to these four questions. (This part is for you – not handed in)
 

How do YOU define intelligence? 

 

Do you think intelligence quotient (IQ) tests—or any standardized test—can predict a person’s ability to learn, or their future? 

 

How do you think people who have communication challenges are perceived by society? 

 

What do you consider to be positive life outcomes for individuals with a label of intellectual disability?

Read over the questions you will answer AFTER viewing the film.
 
Watch “Intelligent Lives”.
 
Respond to these questions AFTER viewing “Intelligent Lives”. Write about 1-2 sentences to one short paragraph for each answer. 
 
Upload your reflection to D2L Assignments in the (A4) B: “Intelligent Lives” Written Reflection AND and post to your group’s discussion thread by Week 2, Tuesday, 5 pm.
 
Intelligence Testing. Chris Cooper states that “49 of 50 states still use intelligence testing as one of the tools to determine whether a student carries the label of intellectual disability. Only 17% of students with intellectual disability are included in regular classrooms. Just 15% of the 6.5 million Americans with an intellectual disability are employed.” 
 
Q1: Think about your own life experience. Have results from IQ testing or other standardized tests impacted (positively or negatively) your educational, college, career, or relationship outcomes? Write a response to Q1.
 
IQ Testing, Disability, Race, and Intersectionality. Chris Cooper narrates: “Research tells us that IQ test results can be biased by factors such as socio-economic status and cultural background. African-American students are almost twice as likely as white students to be classified with intellectual disability.” 
 
Naieer’s parents have fears about how he will be perceived by law enforcement. Do you think those fears are valid? What biases might Naomie’s parents encounter given that they do not speak English fluently? In the past, IQ testing has been used to justify racism, low expectations, and segregation for groups of people. 
 
Q2: Do you think the IQ test can be used in the present day without leading to systemic segregation or limitation for those whose test results label them as having an intellectual disability? Write a response to Q2.
 
Q3: Why do you think IQ testing is so prominent in U.S culture?  (…and it is prominent in many other nations/cultures as well) Write a response to Q3.
 
Communication. According to teacher Samuel Texeira of the Henderson School, “I have a lot of students who don’t communicate in traditional ways and are non-verbal, or they communicate in ways that the outside world sees as very different.”
 
Think about / Do you think if people communicate in non-traditional ways, it affects how they are perceived?  
 
Q4: What are some ways that individuals express their intelligence if they are unable to communicate verbally? What examples did you see in the film?  Write a response to Q4.
 
Remember Michah with his friends at a party or at the brew pub together? 
 
Q5: Picture yourself as a friend of Naier, Naomie, or Micah. It is probably fair to say that most of us would be uncomfortable bringing our friend Nailer, Naomie, or Micah to a party or restaurant where we are meeting up with our other friends. Why is that the case? Are we embarrassed? Are we afraid to be judged or afraid of reactions? Why do we feel that way? Write a response to Q5.
 
Q6: If we wanted to bridge this social divide between us and persons with different abilities (such as Naieer, Naomie, and  Micah) and our other friends….. How would we do it? Write a response to Q6.
