I love this unit as much as my students do! Students do not need parent permission to submit by mail correct? I have one very touching personal barrier essay that could easily be a winner. I am going to get permission on this one. My students wrote their essays in Oct and just revisited them this week to improve them. We were all amazed at how far they have come as writers since October. Next year, I would like to teach this entire unit. How long does it take you? Do you or any of your "fans" have any good resources on Forbidden City by William Bell?
