Social Identity Theory and Ethnic Identity Theory

Please select a social or racial identity theory that helps you make sense of your Story. How do you assess your development as reflected in this theory? In what ways have you developed differently than this theory proposes?

Although you should not summarize the theories, please be sure to integrate a sufficient amount of the relevant aspects of the theory/theories into your discussion to demonstrate an understanding and to give meaning to how you are applying the theory/theories to your narrative. You do not need to discuss every theory that we studied. You might consider discussing some of these theories together in an integrated way. Note that this essay should be analytic, not just descriptive. That is, it is not a summary of your Story and theory, but an integrated analysis of the connections between the two. Include appropriate citations and a reference page, both in APA style. (2-3 double-spaced pages)
