A compiled collection of over 8 weeks worth of materials (over 80 pages) for middle and high school students. This extensive unit bundle includes presentations, videos, handouts, activities, project materials, and news articles. I have spent a few years curating these materials and this unit for use in my 10th grade English classroom. It is powerful and really helps students take ownership of their learning while researching a topic that deeply interests them.

Yours truly,
