This is a great unit. I love the thought that was put into not only educating students on the cultural content but on allowing students to make connections with the culture as well. I'm happy that the legwork has been done, now I can get to it!

This unit is great! Having everything in one place is wonderful. I teach without any resources, including finances. I appreciate when others have taken the time and trouble to put together excellent resources that do not cost un brazo ni una pierna!
