My Cool Place—Using Architectural Design to Express Your Personality
The way people design the space around them reflects their identities. In this task, students will create an architectural design that expresses and celebrates an aspect of their personalities.
First, students will use a bank of personality-trait descriptor words to assign meaning to architectural design examples. Then students will choose words to describe their own personalities. Through drawing and painting with watercolors, students will create architectural designs that show a selected aspect of their personalities. Finally, students will reflect on their choices. This item could be modified and students could create a shoe design that expresses an aspect of their personalities with personality-trait descriptors that are concrete and career-oriented.
This item has been voluntarily field-tested by Michigan teachers with a non-representative sample of students.
