What Else Is Going On Here?
Product Description
This unit is a look at how to read with meta-cognitive skills. It’s about reading with more thought. This means that it is applicable to all reading levels. Strong readers can focus on understanding texts from different perspectives while developing readers can focus on reading comprehension.

This is a great unit that gets students saying, “Wow—my English class is really interesting. I never knew that there was so much going on around me.” Students will choose to read a book and focus on the inequality (Marxism) or the roll of women (feminism) or the many other critical lenses covered in the unit.

Lessons Included:

1. Guiding Unit Questions
2. How to Put On Our New Glasses
3. Is Everything for Sale?
4. Marxism
5. Feminism 1
6. Feminism 2
7. Psychological Readings
8. Practice Our New Glasses
9. Techniques of Ad Persuasion
10. Create Your Own
11. End of Unit “The Truman Show”
** Bonus Planning Ideas

These lessons work with both the most academic students and non-academic students. Academic students will talk about your class at home with their parents and I often ask students to tell me how their dinner conversation went after they learned new concepts in our class. With non-academic students I ask if these new ideas help them understand their feelings towards school.

Have fun and thanks!
