Product Description
These inquiry-based thematic unit plans will engage your students with everything from contemporary film to fascinating radio shows to culturally diverse poetry to recently published research-based non-fiction magazine articles to powerful speeches and non-fiction essays. Students will sharpen their close reading, critical thinking, discussion, cooperative learning, and writing skills.

When you empower your students with the skills to find their own answers to the important questions of the 21st Century, they will be on their way to becoming life-long leaners who take on the challenges that will face them in their lives.

This is a growing bundle. What that means is that if you buy it at the current price, you will get all of the future additions for free.

For now, you will get all of the following resources:

American Dream Thematic Unit: Film, Poetry, and Non-Fiction
These inquiry-based thematic unit plans will add new voices to your discussion of the American Dream while examining three different artistic mediums. Your students will love this unit because they will be engaged by the powerful poems, the fascinating contemporary non-fiction, and one of the greatest documentaries ever made (which is also super popular with teenagers). You will love this unit because it will enable your students to dig deep on important essential questions and to add complexity to their understanding of those issues.

Digital Literacy In The Age Of Fake News
Want to teach your students how to stop the spread of fake news on social media but don't have the time to develop a lesson plan on this new and ever-developing topic?
Included in this resource is everything your students need to know about fake news and the new media literacy. The two-week lesson plans included here will take students through the process of identifying what they know, understanding the impact of fake news and viral sharing on the real world, looking at the way that quality journalism is constructed, and learning what they need to know to be responsible consumers of media.

Task Cards | What is Love?
These inquiry-based task cards will get your students engaged in creative writing, cooperative learning, close reading, analysis, and critical thinking--all about love. You’ll love the common core aligned activities because your students will be working to strengthen their skills. Your students will love the tasks because they’re fun and appealing—and they’ll think they’re taking a break from “real work!” All focusing on the question of “What is Love,” the 14 different stations included will get your students excited about learning when they examine diverse sources. From a TedTalk to ancient Greek philosophers, from a column from The New York Times to writing from 12th-century France, this resource will take your students far and wide.

The Immigrant Experience: Inquiry-Based Thematic Unit
This three-week inquiry-based thematic unit focuses on answering important questions by analyzing different voices, perspectives, and issues of the immigrant experience. By working through close readings and discussion questions, and by engaging in creative writing exercises, your students will gain a greater understanding of the what it means to leave a homeland behind in search of “the golden door” of the United States. All of the texts studied in this unit deal with the problems of immigrants today. I have spent hours finding the most engaging writing on the topic so that your students will care about lives that are probably very different than their own.

The Crucible Teaching Resources: Supplementary Poetry & Non Fiction
This thematic unit on the Salem Witch Trials will engage your students to think about the bigger themes of colonial and Puritan America. From their world view to their religious beliefs to their daily life, the people of the early colonial period lived lives very different from those of contemporary Americans. The texts included in this unit will give students a glimpse into those lives. Three of the pieces included in this resource were written during the time period, and two are contemporary writing on the events of the witch trials in Salem. The texts included in this bundle can be used to introduce themes of The Crucible or as a way of wrapping up a unit on the play. The eight day unit would also make a great stand alone unit to begin a chronological study of American literature.
