G6 – L1: Personal identity, privilege and inequality

Global Citizenship, Equality and Social Justice
Oct 6th, 2017

This lesson aims to help students discuss and reflect on their personal identities and the factors that shape their identities. Students will begin to consider how these identities may differ from others and the ways in which aspects of identity may create inequalities and/or grant certain people privilege. Two key exercises will serve as starting points for discussion and reflection. In the first exercise, students will participate in a game that simulates how an individual’s position may impact their opportunities and success in life. In the second exercise, students will dig into their own identity by creating an “identity wheel” and making connections to how the components of their identity may impact their privilege and place in society.
