Context mapping is a way to figure out where you belong, who you are, and the interests in your life. In the story, Mitch asked Juilan to be on the lookout for teachers while he vandalized the bathroom. That is peer pressure and he was trying to fit in and be cool.
Some key terms in the text:
Forced closed identity- when someone sees things one way and doesn't expand their mind because of limited experiences.
Identity Moratorium- when someone takes interests in different beliefs but does not stick to any of them in particular.
Achieved identity- when the person finds out who they are and are proud of it.
