In our final 9th grade English unit, Sergio, Mick and I will be blogging about the war in Afghanistan.  Each week, we will submit one or two posts reflecting on what we have read and discussed in class and challenging students and other visitors to the blog to share their views.  To keep our blog focused, we will always keep our MYP Unit Plan in mind:

Unit Question:  How do we justify war?

Significant Concept:  What are the consequences of war?

Area of Interaction: (Environments)  How do our Language A skills enable us to understand different environments?

During our unit,  we will be reading War by Sebastian Junger, watching the award-winning documentary Restrepo and examining current events media about the war in Afghanistan.  We welcome you to make comments, respond to our posts and suggest resources for us to consider.
