Unit 3: Making Impressions

Essential Question: What do you do to make a first impression?
In this unit, we will explore how people represent themselves in their relationships and society. Through reading and discussion, we will evaluate how people make effective impressions, explore how people gain and show confidence, and determine how to make an unforgettable impression in our world through drama and poetry. Through these texts, we will analyze what impressions the characters and speakers make as well as what impression the texts make on us as readers. In addition, we will explore how we can make an impression through our writing as well as our day-to-day lives.
