★★★★★ This unit begins with 5 lessons that delve into the complexities of diversity and racism. Using Beverly Daniel Tatum's' article "The Complexity of Identity: 'Who Am I ?'" students work through several complicated identity and race issues. 

-These activities are the perfect introduction to the second part of the unit, "Celebrating My Uniqueness Poster Project" which personalizes the spirit of positive self-esteem and connection.  Students research their own ethnic identity, promoting understanding and appreciation of their own individual uniqueness!!

********************************************************************

Here is what previous buyers are saying about this unit:

"This is an absurdly high-quality unit. It reads like a college-level course, but using language and materials that high schoolers can access. The content is presented sensitively. Thank you to the creator who is clearly committed to shaping young people into thoughtful, engaged citizens."

"Fantastic resources, lots of variety, super easy to use, made my life easier! :)"

"Great resource for teaching empathy and allowing students to identify who they are first and understanding the social constructs around identity. Very mature for some students but able to modify as needed for my MS classes."
