Grade 7 ELA Module 4A, Unit 2, Lesson 16

Students working together

This lesson is in many ways a culmination and celebration of the reading and research students have done thus far in this unit. It provides an opportunity for each student to share his or her learning aloud with the class, as well as to learn from classmates’ research before committing to a position. The students are put into like-minded groups intentionally to encourage them to work together to deepen their arguments.
