The Bridge Program: Burlington High School
People often do not realize that they put on masks when interacting with others. We wear masks to get through a variety of emotional times (stress, anxiety, happiness, etc.). There are thousands of masks we wear, sometimes all within one day. Furthering the discussion from last week's module: Understanding External Masks vs. Internal Masks, we asked students to design their own mask using different colors to represent different emotions. The goal is for students to become aware of these masks and recognize the difference between the way they handle emotions internally and externally.
The masks below were created by our students to express their internal emotions (inside feelings or thoughts) and external emotions (outward expression or presentation). Remember, the colors used were associated with emotion (i.e. Light Blue = calm & collected; Dark Red = Anger & Frustration) and each color and emotion is unique to each mask.
