Unit 1: Personal Growth Lesson 1
Lesson 1: Who am I? Identity Development
One’s identity is based on multiple aspects; in addition to physical appearance, identity includes gender and sexual orientation, ethnicity and culture, personality traits, competencies and talents, and social roles.
In our opening lesson, students learn how a person with a strong sense of self can tolerate feedback and potential criticism from others. Similarly, appreciating oneself is the first step in achieving cross-cultural tolerance and appreciation of differences in others.
