Becoming Naomi León
Karen Boran and Adriana Ibarra, presenters

This interdisciplinary unit uses literature, geography and culture to help understand tradition and festivals at a personal level for 8th grade students. The theme of the unit supports students as they explore the nature of luck – whether such a thing actually exists, and if it does, whether it can be influenced by individual actions and beliefs.
