Who You Are, Good and Bad


Human Diversity


As teenagers are growing up, they are going to come into contact with many different people. Just because some of these people may seem different to them, it does not mean there is something wrong with them. Through this unit, learners are going to see that just because people may seem different then them on the outside, they may find attributes in common with peers that they did not think they had. Learners will create an abstract, autobiographical interpretation representing who they are. Their pieces will be put on display for classmates to see similarities between each other and appreciate the differences.
