7th Grade Identity Comics

March 03, 2017

After close reading of the graphic novel American Born Chinese by Gene Leung Yang, the seventh graders examined the theme of identity as it came up in the novel. Three questions surfaced from the three story lines: When have you questioned an aspect of your identity? When have you hidden an aspect of your identity?

Finally, they planned and composed striking images to accompany their stories.
