  1. 1. Social 10-1 Unit Plan Expressing Individual and Collective Identities This unit is intended to span a one week period, or 8 class periods (1 hour/period). The jigsaw strategy being used in this unit is a more advanced cooperative learning strategy, but a very effective one. This unit is also available online at http://www.slideshare.net/IvyJean/individual-and-collective-identity Ivy Waite 2009 0

  3. 3. UNIT OVERVIEW The focus of the grade 10 curriculum is on globalization – its history, foundation, processes and present day effects. In this unit, students will investigate the different ways that individuals and collectives express their identity, and the changes globalization has made to such expressions. Following the Jigsaw strategy, students will have the opportunity to research, teach and learn in a group environment. The basic tenet of the igsaw strategy is that students first meet in ‘home groups’ to be introduced to the topic, and find out their individual area of expertise. Students then divide off into ‘expert groups’ where they conduct an in depth investigation of one area of the topic. Following the expert’s investigations, students reconvene in their ‘home groups’ to teach one another what they have learned. At this point the Jigsaw, each homegroup will draw a number from a hat, that number will correspond to one of the expert topics, which that home group will be presenting on. The logic behind this activity is that students will all have to be prepared to present on any topic, and only once they have drawn their number can they focus in even more in preparation for a presentation. This procedure may be best understood in a table: How do individuals and collectives in Canada express individual and collective identities? How has globalization affected this? Home Groups: Experts/Group Presentation Topics Each #=student A 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 1 – Language and the Arts B 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 2 – Traditions and Attire C 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 3 – Relationship to Land and Role Modelling D 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 4 – Religion and Spirituality E 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 5 – Ideological beliefs Each of the topics explored is taken directly from the Program of Studies, and may need to be re-worded depending on the students. This unit has students look specifically at identities in Canada, though it could be modified to look at any number of places and people. Beyond asking students to participate in a cooperative learning activity, this unit will have students researching, evaluating sources, organizing information, drawing conclusions from a variety of sources and presenting information in a logical way to their classmates. The outcomes, skills and processes that may be addressed in this unit are outlined in the subsequent section. 2

  12. 12. “How do individuals and collectives express identities? How has globalization changed such expressions?” There are many different ways that people can express their identity. There are also multiple identities that one person can claim: individual, and collective, or shared. Some of the ways identities can be expressed are through language, clothing, religion and ideological beliefs. Over the next week, you will be asked to investigate these and other expressions of identity as they exist in Canada. You will also be asked how these expressions have been affected by globalization. Jigsaw: This activity asks you to investigate different expressions of individual and collective identities using a strategy called a ‘Jigsaw’. You will be placed into ‘home groups’, and then numbered off into expert groups. Each student will have the chance to become an expert on one way that individuals and collectives express their identity, and eventually experts will return to their ‘home groups’ to share their area of expertise. To wrap up the investigations, groups will present on ONE of the expert topics covered in their group. To better understand how a ‘Jigsaw’ works, here is a map: How do individuals and collectives in Canada express individual and collective identities? How has globalization affected this? Home Groups: Experts/Group Each #=student Expert Topics 1 – Language and the Arts A 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 2 – Traditions and Attire B 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 3 – Relationship to Land and Role Modelling C 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 4 – Religion and Spirituality D 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 5 – Ideological beliefs E 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 All this paper: The handouts that follow will allow you to keep track of who-is-who, as well as assess your group members and yourselves. Also, while the presentation topics will not be known until mid-week, the presentation rubric is included for you as well so that you can start thinking about it now. See the presentation rubric for more details on that aspect of your assignment.
