Reviewer Comments:

This comprehensive 6-8 week unit is intended for middle school students and focuses on social networks, media technologies, democracy and students’ rights and responsibilities. The unit is very well organized, including a detailed unit overview, alignment with NCTE / IRA standards, comprehensive outline of necessary teacher preparation, high-quality web (and other) resources, well-written lessons and relevant assessments. Mini-lessons and student activities include timelines, persuasive letters, drama skits, webquests, debates and service learning projects. Students will ultimately create service-learning projects concerning Internet safety and the role media technologies have in providing them a voice in a democratic society. This unit promises to be engaging to young adolescents and will elicit some excellent discussion among students at a time in their lives where this sort of critical thinking is crucial for their social development.
