Grade 9 ELA Module 4, Unit 1, Lesson 20

Students in class

In this lesson, students look closely at how the authors of Sugar Changed the World use the stories of important figures to introduce and refine central ideas over the course of the text. Students work in groups using the index to identify when an important figure appears, what the context is, and how the story of the figure relates to a central idea.
