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

Students working together

Today’s lesson is students’ formal introduction to the overarching research question of the unit: “What are the potential benefits and risks of entertainment screen time, particularly to the development of teenagers?” The overarching research question serves as the “big idea” for students’ research; it will serve as the lens through which the research is focused, as the focus questions have done in previous writing assignments.
