Westwind Elementary School • The ME in MEdia

This inquiry project was part of a unit of study that spanned the entire spring term at Westwind.  The teachers provided guided questions to facilitate the idea that there are multiple identities that one person can have (such as school and personal identities). The students investigated the concept that the school is a construct of multiple individual identities. The Vancouver Biennale public artworks reinforced and inspired students to re-examine their initial thoughts about what identity and art can be. In their unit plan on identity, students also examined specific styles of art and media (music, art, movies, television, and the Internet) to analyse the affects and influences of media in forming their sense of identity. They also examined their identity as it related to their habits as shoppers and consumers
