How Does My Identity Inform My Actions?

Notes to teacher: 

This lesson plan contains two distinct components that can be taught together or separately. The first component includes Parts I-III of the lesson outline; students are asked to think about their own identities and “membership groups” and examine three documents relating to how one’s identity informs one’s actions and perspectives on the world. For the second component, Part IV of the lesson outline, students consider "What's Jewish About Justice?" during an activity using signs posted around the room that each refer to a Jewish value linked to social justice. (When using the "What’s Jewish About Justice" signs, leave time prior to class to copy the signs onto heavy paper and post them around the room.)
