The concept of CULTURAL IDENTITY examines the role that icons play in a culture, using Big Understandings such as "Icons represent our past;Icons don't have to be real, solid things; they can be a symbol of things that contribute to the character and culture of a culture. For example, a name, face, picture, building or even a person..."

PLUS Essential Questions such as, "What is the difference between a hero and an icon?" and "What are the criteria for an icon? E.g. can humans be icons?" PLUS a choice of creative thinking activities, assessment tools etc.


All the hard work done for you - provides you with the planning framework, a recommended video link or book as an introductory hook, a set of photocopiable cards to promote sharing of Prior Knowledge...assessments.. even a list of suggested resources!


Using the highly-praised "Inquiry Learning with Concepts" model, this unit offers you a wealth of meaningful activities to lift your students' learning and to build on students' interests and individual understandings. As H Lynne Erickson says (2007), "Using topics and facts as a support rather than as a final destination, will truly lift academic and teaching standards.”
