Extension or homework questions.

Is it better to have an identity individually or as a part of a group? (this may take a paragraph to answer fully)

Do you think it is more important for us to identify with our culture(s) of origin or that of New Zealand as a whole?

Stereotypes poem.You could do this based on your ethnic group (Maori, Pasifika), nationality (Kiwi, Australian, English), or school identity (e.gAwatapu, Freyberg, PNBHS, PNGHS). If you learn a language, you could do the traits of that group too as identity is also what we learn and pick up from others around us.

Write the sub-heading ‘What makes me a typical <insert group here e.g French, Maori, Japanese, >’

List the features of stereotypes that you think fit your character

If you belong to two racial groups do this for both groups

If you feel you belong to a different group try and use your prior knowledge to compile a list
