Microaggressions Triangle Model

Six Step Approach

Differentiating Overt and Covert Racism

You will be presented with 5 scenes. After each scene, you will be asked to label the interaction as overt racism, covert racism (e.g. microaggression), or neither. Covert racism (including microaggression) may take many forms and are not always easy to recognize

Allie’s Story

Your name is Allie, and you are entering the 12th tutorial that is part of a year-long physiology course. The tutorial includes 12 students working in two groups with one instructor.

This virtual simulation module explores experiences of racism and (micro)aggression occurring in the classroom setting.
