NEH Unit on GMO corn

As Ron and Stephanie predicted, I've continued to work on my curriculum unit, finessing certain points, incorporating different methods of delivery (Glogster, Prezi, Screencast-O-Matic and Voice Thread), and adding audio and visual components like Lila Downs's "Palomo del Comalito" and the above cartoon. After my experience sharing my unit with a teacher of Advanced Placement Biology -- who then proceeded to turn my material into a set of multiple-choice questions -- I'm feeling better about working on it and sharing it again, this time with someone who teaches ELL's. We'll see!
