Have your students complete a text set project based on the theme of individuality and the concept that our experiences shape who we are (as individuals, a society, culture, etc.). This text set assignment has students picking a topic they are interested in, and then developing an argument on the effects of that topic (discrimination, sexism, violence, mental health issues, etc.).
This resource should span several class periods as students will need multiple days to work on this project.
This resource is designed for 12th graders, but is easily modified for 9th-11th graders as well.
Along with all the directions for the assignment, this resource also includes a sample/model of the statement students need to include with their text set.
