Identity, Character Analysis, and Stereotypes

Identity, Character Analysis, and Stereotypes
Product Description
This is a graphic organizer for students to explore aspects of their identity, in addition to recognizing and dismantling harmful stereotypes.

This graphic organizer has been used for students' personal identity exploration, but also can be used for students to analyze and explore a character in a story/novel, or a historical figure. (For example: I am Frida Kahlo. Identity markers: woman, artist, bisexual, disabled, Mexican, etc.)

The students should find 6 identity markers, (I always use myself as an example and use teacher, woman, etc.). The students will then think of a stereotype associated with one of their identity markers (i.e. being a woman or being an athlete), and dismantle the stereotype by completing the word frame, "I am _____, but I am not _____." For example, "I am an athlete, but I am not lazy in school." Of course, the older the students, the more complex these statements can get!

While this was used in a ninth-grade classroom, it is accessible for many grade levels!
