This is a set questions paired with two articles that pose the essential question: Do you know what you digital footprint looks like? The articles catch students' attention immediately, and spark some serious discussion. Not only will students be engaged throughout this mini unit, but also they will be practicing key ELA skills.

*Note about content: One of the articles uses some language that might be considered mature for some readers. It isn't central to the main content of the article, nor is it addressed in the questions. You could easily edit it out upon printing.*
