Identity texts (Cummins and Early, 2011), are projects created by students that facilitate language learning while at the same time reflecting back the students’ identities in a positive light. In this session, you will discover identity text projects from Kindergarten right through high school that will give your English learners’ a voice to express their linguistic and cultural identities. Explore the classroom process of imaginative identity text creation with English learners, and experience student-created identity texts in a variety of formats including digital stories, videos, hardcover fiction, and non-fiction books, collages and three-dimensional art constructions, prose and poetry.
