Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform.

This contains a non-fiction unit mapped out for a blended course. This course would work great with the blended learning model because it has a strong "brick and mortar" connection. About 1/2 of the lessons are completed on the computer and the other half are completed on the computer.

The goal of this class is to provide readers with exposure to a variety of modern literature. In this course, you will be able to choose three genres of contemporary literature to explore. All assignments must reflect critical thinking based on the standards linked to the units. Each until will be introduced with a mini-research project. Your reading progress will be documented on your blog.
