The What About Who

New year and a new mind map for the big idea IDENTITY.

Some of you may be familiar with the Inspiration mind maps that I’ve developed around big ideas or questions which are ‘exploded’ into a wide range of subtopics and then supported with resources found in the Doucette Library of Teaching Resources.
Last fall I was working with teachers around the idea of identity and realized that there was enough really interesting stuff to work with that would be worthwhile in sharing. Identity is one of the core concepts found in the K-12 social studies curriculum program here in Alberta.
PLEASE, do not take this as a fully developed unit or lesson plan. This is a way for me to show how to make a mind map, ways of developing questions, and then providing a ‘jazzy’ bibliography.
Click on Identity from the list to find out how to use the mind map and discover the lists of fabulous resources to support plus some of my behind-the-scenes thinking in developing the questions and subtopics.
Let me know what you think.
