Unit 6 - Personal Relationships
In this unit, students will read texts about birthstones and some social media issues. They will also read and take personality and self-esteem tests. These are not scientific tests, but students should have fun answering them. Throughout the unit, students will have to establish personal connections with the texts.

Would you rather...

  • Be extremely popular on social media, but your only friends are online or have to delete all your social media accounts to have one real friend?
  • Be best friends with a celebrity but never see the spotlight or be a celebrity with many friends but none whom you can trust?
  • Have just two friends that you keep all your life regardless of what happens or adapt your circle of friends to your liking without ever developing any true friendships?
  • Be a very generous person surrounded by lots of friends, some of whom take advantage of your generosity or be a cheapskate and surround yourself only with people who accept you as you are?
  • Be the best person on Earth and live alone or be a mean, detestable person who has as many enemies as friends?
  • Have a friend whose name is Chris P. Bacon or one whose name is MacDonald-Berger?
  • Have Donald Trump’s haircut or Frida Kahlo’s unibrow?
