Grade 6 ELA Module 2A, Unit 2, Lesson 16

Student discussing text with teacher.

Although this lesson is in Unit 2, like Lesson 15 it is actually part of Unit 3. This is to give you time to look over the draft end of unit assessments before handing them back to the students with feedback in Lesson 17.
• Students begin their research with their teams using Research Folders that contain a small number of previously selected research materials for each of the countries identified (see Lesson 15 supporting materials for the list of texts).
• Have these folders ready in advance. Each team needs a Research Folder containing the materials relevant to the topic they have chosen to research, including a glossary of words they may not be familiar with. Have enough of each text for every student in the group, so students can self-select texts.
