    • ELA: E Pluribus Unum-- "From Many, One"

Description: With a focus on the identity of a culture drawn from the writings on one author, this first trimester class will explore the works and words of August Wilson. We will focus on how the cultural experiences, societal influences, and adversity impact individuals in those cultures. Through collaborative inquiry and sharing thoughts and opinions, students will examine several texts by the same author to determine the cultural identity the author is trying to convey. Students may demonstrate their understanding of how cultural and societal influences shape and define identity by creating a presentation of their individual cultural identity through personal narrative or artistic design.
