Summary, etc.:
"Double Take is a fact-packed look at how science is tackling stereotypes. In the intermediate grades, students are likely to encounter and recognize all kinds of stereotypes. Our brains constantly use categories to sort and label the things (and people) around us -- both with good results and frightening ones. This book explores how we all use stereotypes and how science can help us to build more equal societies, where fewer stereotypes exist and minorities don't need to fight for equal rights. It offers plenty of hope for future equality and inclusion for all - and explains the surprising ways that science is helping us to get there."-- Provided by publisher.
