Based on the reader Where Roads Diverge, this course centers around life choices. Many of the stories present eighth graders with examples of people who faced diverging roads, and how their choices affected themselves and others.
The five major themes are “The Right Kind of People,” “Every Good Gift,” “The Gifts of Love,” “Hold Fast Your Dreams,” and “Integrity.” Two or three lessons a week provide work for the whole year.
Many LightUnit exercises also deal with the theme of choosing, giving students tools for thinking through alternatives and taking the right road. Other exercises help students increase comprehension, analyze what they read, and apply it to themselves and their situations.
An optional Teacher’s Guide provides brief teacher’s notes, useful appendices, and alternate LightUnit tests.
