Identity and Place

Source: Facing History and Ourselves

This lesson introduces the theme of identity to students, for whom the question “Who am I?” is especially critical at this point in their adolescent lives. Understanding the concept of identity is not only valuable for students’ own social, moral, and intellectual development, but it is also critical to understanding the choices made by individuals and groups living in Germany during the 1920s and 1930s (as well as during other historical moments). The sharing of “Where I’m From” poems in this lesson also contributes to nurturing a strong classroom community where all students are known.
