This is a unit plan in which students will work in small groups and use technology to research different topics related to a class novel, Pictures of Hollis Woods by Patricia Reilly Giff. They will then use this information to create a Google Slides presentation to share with the class. This “We-Search” activity will be structured as a jigsaw.

This is an outlined unit of Romeo and Juliet. Many of the activities can be placed online (Prezi) to achieve the same success. There's an abundance of Quick Writes and Focus Questions that I didn't specify in the unit. These too, can be placed online for blended learning.
