Can be used with students of all ages but is especially effective with upper elementary and middle school students

Strategy Steps:

  1. Students develop a collage that describes him/herself using pictures and illustrations from magazines or illustrations that they draw themselves.
    • Collages can include such things as interests, physical characteristics, feelings, skills, hobbies, dreams.
  2. Students write compositions about themselves to accompany their collages, describing themselves, emphasizing their skills, and other positive aspects.
  3. Volunteers share their compositions about themselves with classmates.


Variation: Each student develops a collage of another student and writes a description of characteristics and traits portrayed in the collage. They may ask questions of each other to get more information.
