Activity 5: I am Like...Silhouette Activity

Discovering Myself Activities

Developing self-knowledge in different environments: Students engage in discussions and writing activities to develop awareness about themselves as learners and document their learning style and preferences.

Purpose

Students engage in discussions and writing activities to develop self-awareness.

Activity

Students select a silhouette that describes their own personality the best. Characters are used that are familiar to students through books, television and movies in order to illustrate the different traits and personality types. By using familiar characters, students will have a frame of reference as they decide which set of characteristics describes them the best. New vocabulary words are introduced and discussed at the beginning of the activity.

Adaptations

Students use an authoring tool with text-to-speech capability to hear the vocabulary words aloud and answer fields to enter their responses independently.
