Today we continued to explore persona and identity. The students wrote Persona Poems following a template and made masks to go with them. They also wrote Letters to their Future Selves!
Andy: about Justin Bieber’s persona
I understand that you might not like me.
I say that I am good at singing.
I dream that I’m the best singer.
I try to sing good.
I hope that I don’t get a cracked voice.
I am cool and nice.
SJ: from Iron Man to Hulk
I understand that he is stronger.
I say that I am stronger.
I dream that I am strongest.
I try to hold a building.
I hope I am strongest.
I am brave and strong.
Genie: sister to a sister
I pretend that I’m a princess or a singer
I feel a comforting and warm hand.
I touch my dress, my hair, and my face.
I worry about my lost library book.
I cry when I hurt myself or am sick.
I am adventurous and curious.
Suah: Letter to self
I honestly think that all the stuff I need is already with me. I have a family, an education, a future, and a heart. I feel that though I might not have everything I want, I feel like I don’t need anything more or less because all the things I need are already with me.
Ruby: letter to self
I think war should end because it just some silly idea and people get hurt.
