Technology Unit Plan: Technology vs. Real Life

This MONTH LONG unit incorporates LITERARY texts, INFORMATIONAL texts, and POETRY texts in order to have students think critically, creatively, and argumentatively about this topic.

*overall unit plan including the concept map and daily implementation schedule
*handouts for analyzing and comparing informational texts
*a notes format for comparing the two literary texts
*questions for analyzing various poems discussed in the unit
*Written responses
*directions for a culminating activity along with a rubric for easy grading
