Grade 9 ELA Module 1, Unit 1, Lesson 11


The lesson begins with a brief share out of the previous lesson’s Accountable Independent Reading homework assignment. Next, students will review their reading annotation of St. Lucy’s School for Girls Raised by Wolves from Lesson 10 (beginning with the paragraph, “On Sundays, the pretending felt almost as natural as nature” and ending before the paragraph, “At seven o’clock on the dot, Sister Ignatius blew her whistle…” (pp. 239-241)). Students will participate in a Text-Dependent Questions Gallery Walk that will ask them to interact with and discuss the text.
