The foundation of this unit will be based on my research of communities. Through multiple resources, I created the following questions, which will be used in class to "dissect" each community. These questions will serve as a way for students to keep track of each community and easily compare the different communities they are introduced to in the variety of texts that will be used. These questions also serve as a way to force students to close read each text. These questions should be kept in a portfolio.
