This week, we will begin exploring another section of Part I, Language in Cultural Context: Language and Identity.
With each generation, it seems discovering and defining who you are as an individual, and maintaining uniqueness and individuality within our communities becomes more and more challenging. Often, as we go about our daily lives, we are forced to wear masks. These masks reflect more of what we believe OTHER people expect us to be rather than who we truly are. Most of us have many masks in our "wardrobe," and we are flipping through them so often during the days, weeks, and months, we eventually lose track of who we TRULY are underneath it all.
Who we are as individuals may be determined and defined by a myriad of different factors, depending on our beliefs and world views. What is YOUR truth?
You don't need to answer that here. Instead, watch this very unique short film about Identity. Then, write a synopsis of the film: what is it about? What is the message? What did you as the viewer take from it?
