Description

Overview:
This activity for gifted learners might serve as a culminating activity of part of a larger social studies unit or an English language arts unit centered on the concept of culture.  Students will take part in close readings of a variety of fiction (folktales, myths, historical fiction, etc.) and non-fiction (informational books, reference books/materials, maps, magazines articles, original documents, websites, etc.) throughout the unit.   As they read, they will pay attention to the different sections of the books (e.g., - nationalities, religions, languages, etc.) and take notes on what applies to them/where they fit in regard to that topic/category, thus comparing  & contrasting where they stand when considering their place in America & their place in the world. They will then work to create a “self portrait” by crafting their research into a portrait that conveys who they are in America, in the world, and in their own head & heart and present that information to the class.  This lesson was developed by NCDPI as part of the Academically and/or Intellectually Gifted Instructional Resources Project. This lesson plan has been vetted at the state level for standards alignment, AIG focus, and content accuracy.
