Unit Info

As we leave for Spring Break we have now finished The Giver and are now go to start moving into our fourth unit, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. We will be reading the graphic novel adaptation of this text, which omits controversial language while still keeping the overlying theme and message of the story.

We will begin by exploring what a perfect society might look like as a way to bridge the gap between The Giver and Huck Finn. Then, we will do a series of explorations of the time period surrounding slavery.
