This unit is on writing a research paper. I use it after we have completed a social justice unit but any research topic could substitute. The suggested topic list in this topic are of social justice topics; however, that can be easily altered.
I use this unit in high school English resource classes, but it could be adapted for use in any class in junior or high school. It usually takes 2-3 weeks to complete but that is solely dependent upon the interest and needs of the students.
This is a step-by-step guide through the whole writing process. It includes an outline that is very useful for students who have difficulty with writing assignments. It also includes an optional blank outline that is excellent to use for differentiation that basically prompts a student for each line of the paper that is written
