Grade 9 ELA Module 3, Unit 2, Lesson 8

Student reading

In this lesson, students continue to conduct searches independently using the Research Frame as a guide, with the associated search tools. This lesson is part two of the independent search process and builds on the previous lesson by focusing students on determining if the research they did is sufficient to address established inquiry paths and questions, and adjusting the search accordingly. Additionally, students are reading sources closely, analyzing details and ideas, and taking notes for each source to determine how it addresses inquiry questions and paths.
