Grade 6 ELA Module 2A, Unit 1, Lesson 9

Student reading and citing text to teacher.

This lesson is similar in structure to Lesson 7 and is the second of the two-lesson cycle. In this lesson, students dig deeper into Paragraphs 12–14 in order to answer text-dependent questions.
• In this lesson, students use the Odell Forming Evidence-Based Claims graphic organizer to make a claim to answer a question. They gather details from the text to answer the question and then connect those details to make a claim. To prepare students to work independently on making an evidence-based claim in Lesson 11, in this lesson they identify one detail and the thinking behind choosing one detail as a whole group.
