MYP Year 5 Language and literature
This week we will be investigating the parallel expressions of identity between a group and an individual.
When we began the unit, we used the metaphor of an onion and its layers to examine the layers of identity both visible and invisible, that we believed make up our Self.
This week we are extending our inquiries to see if there are relationships between how groups perceive collective identity and how an individual in that group might parallel those concepts, attitudes, and behaviors. Your task this week is to represent these relationships through a visual text that you create. Details are in the task specific clarifications on Managebac.
Some supplementary materials this week are Hofstede’s Dimensions of culture. One of the dimensions is found in this video.
Which other dimensions are found in Hofstede’s model?
How do these dimensions allow us to use historical and cultural perspectives to examine literature?
