Intro

Understanding self and identity in the larger context of contemporary culture, technology and society has grown increasingly more complex for this generation as children and teens engage in or are subjected to media content, and the digital platforms that deliver it to the end user, that challenge community standards and undermine educational prerogatives.

This unit engages students in an exploration of the self and the construction of the “I,” with a focus on how teens construct identity and relate on and through social media. This work is followed by an inquiry into a current Social Studies issue, and an exploration of the sociological concept of the “Other.” These lessons are then tied together in the final culminating assignment of the unit – a literary essay that draws on learning from the earlier lessons in the critical interpretation of a dystopian narrative.

The importance of educating students about otherness has never been more apparent, particularly in school spaces, as diverse student populations create unique challenges for schools and the communities that they serve. This unit aims to draw out those tensions and create a constructive, intellectually engaging discourse among students, revealing the social dynamics of otherness while at the same time, pointing to the bonds that create stronger communities and foster social capital.
