I created this unit for my 8th grade students. This unit is a 6-week, layered curriculum, standards-based unit. The assignments are separated by difficulty-level to make differentiation extremely easy! I get bored just having my kids read and answer questions, so the activities in this unit are much more engaging than that. My students love that this unit involves choice, and I love that it holds them accountable for their own learning. There is a heavy focus on writing and citing evidence.
