Unit 5 Project: Growing Up Digital

Unit Description

You'll grapple with the core questions of the unit: who are we, and who have we become because of the ways we connect? Working in a group, you'll create a museum exhibit that identifies what's worth preserving about your unique place in history, and you will examine other museum exhibits as you learn how to employ effective storytelling techniques in your own. Your final exhibit will consist of text, digital media, and other artifacts that help tell the story of your unique perspective as a group.

Close reading of the texts in this unit will help you answer these Guiding Questions:

  • What does it mean to be digitally connected?
  • What are the implications of living in a world where everyone is digitally connected?
  • How does the availability of instant connectivity shape our relationships?
  • What does our Internet use reveal about people?s needs as humans?
