This lesson unit is on how to write a paper. The subject matter is on famous Native Americans. I have included a power point with some ideas. There are of course several other Native Americans for them to choose from. You could use this in a larger unit on Native Americans or Night of the Notables. This lesson unit is solely on how to write a paper. I have also included the works cited in the New MLA format that has just been updated. I have also included the link to the Online Writing Lab at Purdue University in my resource page which is a wonderful resource on all things writing related including how to cite in this new format. Also since I do not know how much time you want to spend on research and writing I have included only a few lesson plans to get the students started and the rest will be “Research days” and “Writing Days”.
