Classroom Considerations
  • See paper doll examples at
  • Comes with just about everything you need to prepare and assign the project; see the materials tab for another material related to the artist's statement
  • Requires pupils to think critically about social construction and how they and others represent themselves
  • Some of the assignment pages may need minor formatting edits; since the resource is a Word document, this is possible
  • Some learners may have difficulty grasping the concept of social construction
