students working on homework

In this first lesson of the unit, students continue the process of drafting a narrative essay. Students draw upon the material they wrote during 12.1.1 Lessons 2, 6, 12, 18, 24, and 28 to develop their narratives using the techniques they explored in The Autobiography of Malcolm X and “Yellow Woman and a Beauty of the Spirit.” If applicable, students should also use the ideas and drafts they developed during Accountable Independent Writing in Module 12.1.1.
