@karenma Great idea! This unit seems like it has a lot of opportunity to bring in social justice... UNFORTUNATELY we are just finishing up this unit but next year I am really going to try to make it more social justice focused.
Also, just a heads up for people out there - I had my students share out in groups by counting off. I noticed that my students needed to brainstorm norms around presenting/listening to each other in class. I thought it was common courtesy, but apparently that isn't so common. We talked about the importance of actually showing your group your visual and for listeners to be making eye-contact and asking questions etc. In my second hour, after having that conversation, the presentations went a lot better.
One thing I am learning this year is I need to give clearer cues to students for when they need to be off their electronics.
