Connecting to the Concept of Identity in Literature and Local Latino Lives

In this lesson students make personal connections to the concept of identity and the potential effects of external forces on identity, prior to transferring their analysis skills to interpreting the concept of identity as seen in literature. (The latter is not described in this lesson plans). Students will examine some of the various ways people identify themselves and the influences upon their identities, culminating in a personal reflective essay.
