Throughout this WebQuest, you will explore the themes of government, class systems, and identity - both within BNW and how these themes apply to the real world. Your goal is to gather information about how government-imposed class systems affect identity.
You will do this in 3 different ways: Read & Respond, Select & Support, and Create.
Students will be able to -
- Identify components of a caste or class system and establish how they influence identity
- Determine the ways in which government systems use classification to exert control over its citizens
- Establish the types of government which are using caste or class systems and identify similarities between each
Finally, you will create a visual representation of your identity, reflecting on how your government supports it, and how you express your true identity.
Remember - this activity is going to require you to carefully read the material and use your analytical skills to draw comparisons! So stretch your brain muscles and get to it!
