This resource is intended to be used as a primary text for your students, which they will read individually, as a class, or in small cooperative groups, I have included a useful graphic organizer that can be used to help students read and analyze the content of each information page. They should then complete the activities that are assigned to each lesson unit, the majority of the activities are designed to develop their understanding of the content material, many of these activities are to be completed by each individual student. The larger projects may be completed in pairs or alone, at the discretion of the teacher.
Each project is designed to engage students in critical thinking and encourage them to apply the knowledge and concepts that they have learned. Each unit has a multiple choice quiz, with answer key.
