In this project, you will demonstrate your mastery of the following competency:
· Apply your psychological knowledge to develop a social change identity
Your identity is a diverse collection of the perceptions and experiences that shape the lens through which you see the world. Throughout our development, our identities are in a constant state of flux: snapshots of our attitudes, interests, and aspirations at a given moment in time. As we explore the social themes that matter to us, our identities reflect how we think, how we feel, and who we are, right now. For this project, you will reflect on various psychological and social factors to develop your social change identity.
Using the learning from your Module One and Module Two Milestone assignments, along with the Social Change Identity Vocabulary List, you will address the following rubric criteria to construct your own definition of your social change identity. Write at least one paragraph for each of the following:
· Describe the ways in which your personality traits have influenced the development of your social change identity.
· Describe the ways in which your lived experiences have influenced the development of your social change identity.
· Describe the ways in which your social influences have influenced the development of your social change identity.
· Describe the ways in which your willingness to be psychologically vulnerable has influenced the development of your social change identity.
