Revisit your preparation reading on identity development. On each page of the Jamboard, record your notes on each phase of identity development.Download the Jamboard images and save them in your learning journal.

Identity Development

Johnny Depp

‘As a teenager I was so insecure. I was the type of guy that never fitted in because he never dared to choose. I was convinced I had absolutely no talent at all. For nothing. And that thought took away all my ambition too.




Watch the trailer ‘Love, Simon’ : Using the notes in the Jamboard you made in the previous task, which aspects of identity development can you see? Consider:

  • identity diffusion
  • identity foreclosure
  • moratorium
  • identity achievement
Make notes in your learning journal

Activity 1

John Bishop

‘No one understands anyone 18, including those who are 18.’

Activity 2




Read the case study about Daan: According to Erikson's theory, what is the psychosocial crisis that Daan is experiencing?

  • identity diffusion
  • identity foreclosure
  • moratorium
  • identity achievement
Use concrete examples from the case study to explain your previous answer. What of Daan's behaviour can be linked to nature and/or nurture? Explain.

- Andrew Shue

‘The most important role models should and could be parents and teachers. But that said, once you're a teenager you've probably gotten as much of an example from your parents as you're going to.’


Don't forget your exitticket!


Use your notes from the preparation to analyse the examples of common adolescent behaviours you found in popular media. Link the visible behaviour to Erikson’s theory. You can use the same examples you used for chapter one an two of your Portrait, or you can search for more if you like. Think of effective teacher behaviour. This will form chapter three of your Portrait of an Adolescent.
