What Is Me? Explore the Self through Names, Art and Symbols

Four lessons make up this unit on self. Learners research and discuss the significance of their given names and examine their perceptions of astrological signs and horoscopes. They explore objects in the paintings of Canadian artist Robert Harris (you could use work by a painter with more relevance to your class if needed), illustrate several symbols that represent them, and create a crest for themselves based on the symbols they chose.

Lesson Planet has allowed me to better serve my students by exposing me to a wide variety of techniques to teach various algebraic concepts. In a short time I am able to benefit from others' wide range of experiences in the classroom while having the latitude to alter or change what does not fit my teaching style or the learning styles of my students.
