Product Description

Engage students with this synthesis essay unit that centers on a juicy, relevant question and provides student-choice. Students will choose one of three subtopics (science, technology, or social media) and examine if society has taken it "too far." This analytical synthesis essay prompt will require students to define the line of "too far" and consider ethical issues that define their reality and future.

I've never seen my students more intrigued and engaged in the writing process. This unit is a favorite of theirs because it is so relevant. And because my students are so engaged, this unit always results in better essays that are--dare I say it--fun to read! Win-win!
