Experiencing Your Identity: Developmental Materials for Academic and Community Settings.
Arum, Mary Louise; And Others
This book for teachers, counselors, or group leaders, provides a set of activities through which young persons can experience issues relating to their own sense of identity. The activities are based on the life experiences of 100 adult women interviewed in 1977-78. The exercises can be used in a variety of high school, community college, or community group settings and to complement a variety of course offerings. Three types of activities are included based on three avenues of learning and experiencing. Following the introduction and explanation, the second chapter, Topics for Creative Expression, consists of materials to guide young persons in recognizing their own experiences and expressing them orally, graphically, and in writing. The participants respond to the words of women describing critical events in their lives. Activities for Group Participation includes structured activities to provide bases for clarifying what participants desire for their own lives. The final chapter, Learning From Your Experience, leads participants in interviewing each other and reviewing what they have learned. (JAC)
