Welcome to the Identity unit!

What makes us who we are? This is a fundamental, but difficult, question to answer. How can we become who we want to be? This unit examines these questions with stories about people, both real and fictional, who are exploring their identity.
In this unit, you will:
  • Read stories and informational texts on the theme of identity
  • Think about what identity means to you
  • Identify themes about characters’ identities in stories
  • Watching videos that explain different approaches and strategies for reading
  • Reading and answering questions about literary and informational texts
  • Expanding your academic vocabulary
In order to answer the essential question: What defines us as individuals?
