The #MeToo / Silence Breakers movement was probably one of THE defining events of 2017. This unit plan focuses on topics of ethics and digital literacy while examining current events. There are many opportunities for self-reflection, as well as answers requiring students to look up answers online. I've also made this unit plan form fillable [no more messy handwriting!]: student can type directly into the worksheets if you assign it for homework. Then they can print or email to you. Or, you can just print it and the students can write in the blank spaces. Whichever you prefer!
- Time Magazines "Person of the Year"
