Belief Systems and Identity

This week, students began a multi day lesson on beliefs and emotions. We started off the week listening to a piece of music, during which students were instructed to draw or write what they were feeling or thinking as they listened. Students then shared the drawings or writing in small groups. This led us into a discussion on why each person’s experience with the music was different. Students then broke out into groups and came up with working definitions for culture, identity and beliefs system. Students then completed an exercise on identity and were then encouraged to think about their own identity through an art project.

With midterms coming up next week, students were given extra time to complete homework and studying with their mentors.
