Although this unit is designed for Novice High - Intermediate Low, it can easily be adapted to either lower or advanced/AP levels. This would be a great unit to either wrap up level 1, or to start Levels 2, 3, 4. Because of the authentic resources, it would also work as an AP unit by adding more sophisticated language and advanced grammar.
