Grade 9 ELA Module 2, Unit 3, Lesson 10

Students working on computer

In this lesson, students will encounter the third text of this unit. Students will first listen to a masterful reading of this text, and then work with a classmate to read the first 9 paragraphs. The teacher will model the development of a discussion question for the students, and discuss the attributes of a quality discussion question. This will help prepare students for the End-of-Unit Assessment, wherein they will be evaluated on their academic discussion.
