This dissertation documents and analyzes the impact of a curriculum-based identity intervention on the adolescent process of identity exploration in a multicultural setting. The identity intervention was implemented during the third unit of study within the Kailua High School ethnic studies curriculum, with eighty-nine student participants over a three-year period. At the culmination of their learning experience each of these students wrote an identity narrative. The identity narratives were the main source of data in the study, and were analyzed using a constructivist approach to grounded theory methods. Results from this analysis were reported in three parts: (1) ten identity mosaics depicting ethnic, place and gender identities found in the study's cultural context; (2) overall qualitative themes; and (3) the pedagogical impacts of the ethnic studies curriculum. From these results theories were developed describing (a) the role of narrative in identity construction, (b) the tendency for adolescents in a multicultural community context to give more attention to the outside world than the establishment of their unique sense of self, (c) the role of internal factors such as agency, emotions, and philosophical thinking in mediating the outside world of adolescents exploring their identity in a multicultural context, and (d) the role of curriculum-based identity interventions in supporting the interaction between adolescents' internal factors and outside world during identity exploration in a multicultural context. Implications for the future of identity research, education, and curriculum-based identity interventions are discussed
