Grade 7 ELA Module 2A, Unit 1, Lesson 9

Students sitting at their desks taking an assessment.

This lesson includes the Mid-Unit 1 Assessment. Before students complete the assessment, they have time to review and discuss the reading they did for homework. Their conversation should not focus on working conditions, but making sure that all students have a clear understanding of setting, plot, and character in these chapters will make the Mid-Unit 1 Assessment a more reliable measure of whether they can use textual evidence to explain working conditions, not just whether they understood the chapters.
• For this purpose, the Checking for Understanding entry task includes both a check on notes and more time for questions about the vocabulary in the Reader’s Dictionary.
