This is a PowerPoint Introduction to the Abby Sunderland unit for grade 7 HMH Collections. It is for "Comparing Media: Covering Issues in the News". It has background information on Abby Sunderland and her attempted solo sail around the world. It also introduces the three media types used in the unit: News Articles, Editorials, and Television News Interviews.
