This module contains three separate student lessons, providing concrete examples of how the CCSS ELA shifts unfold in the classroom.  Workshop 4 is a student lesson exemplifying ELA strategies involved in building vocabulary and using background knowledge as a context for learning.  The student lesson featured in Workshop 5 focuses on building comprehension using close reading and other important instructional strategies emphasized by the Common Core.  Especially with the strong CCSS emphasis on non-fiction texts, this module brings nonfiction to life, Workshop 5 through reading and Workshop 6 through writing.
