Directions: There are two passages to read from Common Lit with questions to answer: "We Wear the Mask" and "Jabari Unmasked".  (You should access them via Google Classroom, but if you don't have access that way for some reason, they are at the very bottom of this page.) The fun part is the (Un) Mask Project.

In Encounters 6, you had the One Word/ Happy Word project.

In Encounters 7, it was the Number Burst.

This year, it's the Identity / Un-Mask Project.

The idea behind this project, which is also the theme of the poems, Cyndi Lauper song, and the Identity video

is that there are times when we hide our true feelings, beliefs, attitudes...

from the people around us.

This is your chance to show the world what you are all about;

what's important to you

If you click the example gallery below,

you'll see examples of how the project will turn out.

True Colors

You with the sad eyes
Don't be discouraged, oh I realize
It's hard to take courage
In a world full of people
You can lose sight of it all
The darkness inside you
Can make you feel so small

 

And I see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that's why I love you

So don't be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful
Like a rainbow

Show me a smile then
Don't be unhappy
Can't remember when
I last saw you laughing
If this world makes you crazy
And you've taken all you can bear
You call me up
Because you know I'll be there

 

(chorus)

Ooh can't remember when
I last saw you laughing
This world makes you crazy
And you've taken all you can bear
Just call me up
Because you know I'll be there

And I see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that's why I love you
So don't be afraid
To let them show

Your true colors
True colors are beautiful
Like a rainbow

 

(Maybe you recognize this song from the movie Trolls, but Cyndi Lauper sang it first back in 1986 and it hit #1 and stayed there for two weeks :-)
