Description

This interdisciplinary unit builds class community and celebrates identity in ways that will speak to multiple learning styles. Engage your students with fun activities, including dance, poetry, and performance. George Ella Lyon's "Where I'm From," Alvin Ailey's Revelations (1960) and Camille A. Brown's Black Girl: Linguistic Play (2016) serve as examples of artworks that draw upon community and identity. Students will reflect on all three works and create their own poems and dance. The unit culminates in a performance or sharing of an original class dance.
