We Fall for Selfies

Students in seventh-grade ELA classes began the school year by examining themselves and determining what makes them unique from others. As a kickoff to the school year, all students were asked to complete a selfie project. Identity is the theme of ELA this year, so students revealed their own identities before preparing to analyze the identity of characters. Students were asked to share their favorites, interests, family, wishes, goals, moments, and challenges. Upon completing the project, they found that each classmate has their own unique identity.
