Grade 7 ELA Module 2A, Unit 2, Lesson 8

Student reviewing written text at their desk.

This lesson includes the End of Unit 2 Assessment, which assesses RI.7.2 (except for writing an objective summary), RI.7.3, and RI.7.5.
• In the new Chávez speech that students read for this assessment, there are terms that students will not be familiar with. In order to accurately assess the skills included on the assessment and ensure there is no confusion over meaning of these terms, the
definitions should be posted for students to refer to during the assessment.
• After the End of Unit 2 Assessment, there is time dedicated for Independent Reading. Pick up where you left off with the launch of independent reading or do a check-in. See the Launching Independent Reading in Grades 6-8: Sample Plan (standalone
document on for possible activities.
