An EDIM502 project by Jason Hanlon, Lara Stewart-Sandell, Linda Mack & Silvia Martinez
PURPOSEPre-teen students are just starting to develop a mature awareness of their own identity. They are beginning to develop and act on ideas about identity. In the 21st century, they are often highly influenced by media messages about identity. This is a perfect age to guide students to a better understanding of the elements in their lives which shape their identities, and to develop an awareness of the diversity of identities. This “mission” helps students see that the people in their lives (family and friends); their own interests and abilities (multiple intelligences); and their dreams and goals for themselves all play a part in shaping their identity.
