This unit includes collaboration between science and social science. The authors demonstrate how collaboration allows students to interrogate difficult content to support high-level analysis and synthesis. Students are provided with a scaffolded instructional environment where they learn to analyze, synthesize, and construct a thesis based on evidence. Students use resources to develop competence with critically analyzing and discussing varying viewpoints. Finally, students will make a supported assertion regarding a social construct and how race is evinced within those ideals.
