This assignment asks students to reflect on all the various cultures and subcultures that make up who they are create and visual representation of those items.
Included in the assignment are directions with a Common Core grading reference, my example and a power point 'work space' to show students how to modify images if necessary.
Students have a great time presenting their puzzles or conducting a galley walk with silent comments.
This is a great way to get to know your students and also share things about yourself. I usually do this assignment close to the beginning of the year in my Literature classes.
If computers are not available, this same assignment can be done with drawings or magazine cut-outs.
