Allowing adult learners and staff to reflect on their social identity together as a group can be a valuable experience, both in the classroom and for professional development. The Social Identity Wheel worksheet is an activity that encourages individuals to reflect on their identities, visible and invisible, and on the various ways those identities become more keenly felt at different times. Individuals can explore how those identities impact and influence our views on the world as well as the ways others perceive us. Conversations from this exercise can be extended to exploring how privilege operates to normalize some identities over others.
