Identity Resources


Directions: This page contains links to research and articles about race and other identities and how they can affect Americans in their daily lives. Some of these resources are designed for kids your age and others were written for adults. This means some of them might be harder to understand. I've included a link to my favorite online dictionary here to help you understand any words that confuse you. You should also use me as a guide as you read these articles, asking me questions to help you understand what you read. Discussing these articles with your classmates will also help you. Feel free to use headphones to watch videos on the following articles and to click on links to read other articles linked in your article. If you do not have headphones, please mute your volume before clicking on any of the links below, many of which have ads. As you research here, please fill out your Project Identity graphic organizer.
