The Looking-Glass Self is one of those abstract Sociological concepts that can be difficult for high school students to understand. This lesson guides them through it by encouraging them to relate it to their own lives. They will watch film clips and respond to them on one of the handouts; they will complete a foldable that asks them to consider how other people view them; finally, they will complete a collage that asks them to differentiate between their perception of what other people think of them and other people’s actual thoughts of them.
This can be a great exercise in self-reflection for any subject.
Here’s what you’ll get:
1. A PowerPoint slide with the definition of the looking-glass self and links to film clips.
2. A 2 page handout to go along with the slide and the film clips.
3. A foldable to help students reflect on how the concept applies to their lives
4. A template for the collage activity
5. A ticket out the door
6. A lesson plan to help implement the lesson
