Description

This unit provides opportunities for students to explore situations and events that involve personal and social challenges. Students are encouraged to identify with characters who demonstrate their personal courage and determination, their social commitment, and their physical or intellectual capabilities in life-like situations. In the process of struggling to survive, alone or as part of a group, the characters change. Often, so do Middle Level students who interact with these characters in their reading, writing, listening, and speaking experiences.

Some questions that students may explore during this unit include the following:

Throughout the unit, students will engage in the language processes of speaking, listening, writing, and reading in an integrated manner. It is important to provide for integrated language study in context, whenever it is relevant and required. Some suggestions are made in the lesson plans; however, teachers will need to determine their students' needs and ability levels to decide when and where to provide language study support.
