Evidence of Our Journey - Positive Personal and Cultural Identity Part 2
Identifying personal strengths and abilities – “Students acknowledge their strengths and abilities, and they intentionally consider these as assets, helping them in all aspects of their lives. Students understand that they are unique and are a part of larger, and often multiple, communities. They explain how they are using their strengths and abilities in their families, their relationships, and their communities.”
Our goal is to encourage students to identify and acknowledge their strengths and abilities, and to activate students’ voices. Students created a series of Identity Maps, allowing them the opportunity to revisit their likes and dislikes and how that makes up a part of their identity. This led to students answering a series of questions about themselves.
