1. Using one of the identity development models discussed in class, you will write an essay mapping out your journey of personal identity development. You will include concrete examples from your life that exemplify the various stages of development. You will recognize your current stage of development and be able to explain why you are currently in that stage.
2. Identity development models were developed by psychologists long before you were born. Critique the model that you used to map out your journey. Were you able to recognize yourself in the model? Is it outdated? How? Why? What about the model is flawed? How would you adapt the model to match your own understanding of your development as a young adult, your racial identity development, or your identity development an LGBTQ person?
