Identities survey - Shadow - 09-11-2009 04:39 PM

This is actually a quick survey for a uni assignment based on identities.

My assignment is basically about how we all act differently and have different idenities when we are in different settings/with different groups of people.

What I am also talking about is how schools should makes literacy more engaging to by relating topics to the identities of it's students. Confused? (eg: who would you rather read about? An old man in the 1700's harvesting cotton or a character who you can actually identity with/relate to on a topic you are actually interested in?)


(if that all went straight over your heads thats no big deal Smile

If anyone has a minutes, heres a quick survey for my essay-
If you have time to jot down some answers it would be really be helpful to me!

Thanks again, Shadow xo[/quote]

Can you think of any other aspects that may influence how you may act differently in different groups? (eg: the setting of where you are, how well you know the people, age, gender)

What are some characteristics about other people that may cause you to judge them differently/act differently towards them? (eg: how they dress- are they nerdy/cool, what they're interested in - what games they play, what music they listen to, where they're from- race, their age, gender, what aspects of their personality- are they shy, are they rude, mean, cool etc)

Not really, pretty mainstream/average


Can you think of any other aspects that may influence how you may act differently in different groups? (eg: the setting of where you are, how well you know the people, age, gender)

Where I am and how i'm with- home, school.... or if i'm in a working environment where i have to act responsibly


What are some characteristics about other people that may cause you to judge them differently/act differently towards them? (eg: how they dress- are they nerdy/cool, what they're interested in - what games they play, what music they listen to, where they're from- race, their age, gender, what aspects of their personality- are they shy, are they rude, mean, cool etc)

Age, I act differently to people of different ages. I try to be respectful to everyone, but I feel I can talk more on a friendship level to people my own age, rather than people much older who I can't relate to as well.
