In this hangout, teachers and students shared their experiences of engaging in an inquiry-driven unit focusing on a collective study of culture, using a variety of texts and individual student literature books that led students to researching topics, writing, and composing with various media. Participants discussed the research process, writing a traditional research paper, purposeful use of digital tools, and media creation.
