As the adoption of the Common Core Standards progresses throughout the nation, it becomes clear that higher-level thinking is no longer a choice, but instead it is a fundamental part of teaching students 21st Century Skills and preparing them for the future.

According to www.corestandards.org, students who meet college and career readiness are “self-directed learners, effectively seeking out and using resources to assist them, including teachers, peers, and print and digital reference materials.”

This interactive unit meets such demands and is aligned to the Common Core Standards.
