In a crowd of people, no two will have the same identity, but how do we describe it? In class we'll have a discussion about this very thing so come prepared with ideas on what makes identity. We'll also be taking those ideas into the beginning of research using:
Web/Wikipedia fact about your group identity
Library Catalog (E-Books and Print Books Only) fact about your group identity
Sociological Abstracts (Sociology) - quote about your group's identity
ProQuest Newsstand (Newspapers) -quote from a member of group
An example of a great identity quote:
Huynh -- who changed his name to Tom Vial Huynh -- believes in working hard and seizing opportunities.
"I want to be a very good citizen, not a burden to people here," he said. "The first day, I came here. The second day, I went to work right away."

a person's conception and expression of their own (self-identity) and others' individuality or group affiliations
Ethnicity as a cultural background
Social class (socio economic status)
Possessions, stuff I own (also what I desire to own)
Body size, physical presentation
Education, the job I have (also what I aspire to do)
Language (native language speaker vs. barrier of non-native speaker)/regional accent
Adoption of identity (assimilation)
Rejection of identity (2nd generation) (iconoclasm)
where I came from (who I was when I was younger)
who I aspire to be, even my unrealized dreams to become something
