This unit covers a variety of texts whose primary goal is to convey information. The unit's main text is Outliers, a look at some of the hidden factors that influence people's ability to succeed. The unit also explores what readers can learn from primary and secondary historical texts, how science writers and technical writers can take complicated information and communicate it in an understandable way, and how writers use rhetoric to persuade readers. For the final project, students will write and present an argumentative research essay.
