Personal and Group Identity


Product Description

Reflecting on identity is quite possibly the most important business of being a teenager. This unit asks teens to describe what it’s like to be them—how their insides and outsides match, or perhaps don’t—within a social media-soaked culture. Radiating out from themselves, students discuss family and the parts of themselves that they inherit. Extending an additional layer, peers ask each other what community means to them. With videos, poems, and provocative readings, learners discuss how stereotypes of race, gender, and class block authentic relationships and cause harm. In a culminating project, students symbolically express their identity in relationship to others in the form of a ‘Me Map’ map. Representing their figurative boundaries, natural resources, and ports of entry, young people become clearer about who they are and how they connect with others.
