Unit Description:

According to Nolan Gertz, “Any toy can be played with, just
as any rarity can be collected, but what makes action figures special is their
ability to shape, and reveal, the nature of their owners.”

As we will see, not only do action figures “shape and reveal the nature of their owners,” but they also tell us something about our own society. In this unit, we will read about action figures, watch commercials, read articles, make commercials, write essays, and DISCUSS a number of topics all in an attempt to discover what these little dolls tells us about ourselves and our society. Because “despite its changes over the last 50-something years, the action figure still stares back at whoever holds it, daring children to see who they could become and adults to see who they
think they are” (Nolan Gertz).

This is would be a fun unit for an AP Language class, but I have done it with a variety of levels. Please note, this is not a day by day unit description. You will need to look through the bibliography and use those resources which make the most sense to you. I have done the hard part, though. You won't have to spend hours looking for interesting articles and videos or come up with essay questions and creative assignments. I have priced it at 7.00 to reflect the amount of time and effort it took to produce what you will receive.
