Overview of this Lesson:
Using two songs by India Arie as well as an excerpt out of Sharon Flake’s The Skin I’m In, students will explore their own self image. After analyzing the qualities that each student feels that they embody, they will compare these to the qualities that they portray to others. The students will then be creating and taking through the writing process an expository essay comparing who they are internally vs. who they are seen as externally.
