     Session Plan


    Welcome to a new unit in English 12!  

    In this unit, we'll complete an in-depth exploration of the life and times of Martin Luther King, Jr.  Along the way, we'll explore lots of strategies for reading non-fiction and thinking like a researcher.  Much of the work in this unit is modeling a process that you'll do on your own with a new research topic in Unit 6.
