Grade 11 ELA Module 2, Unit 2, Lesson 13

Students studying

In this lesson, students prepare for the following lesson’s End-of-Unit Assessment. Students engage in an evidence-based discussion to determine similar or related central ideas present in Audre Lorde’s "From The House of Yemanjá" or "An Address by Elizabeth Cady Stanton" and either Booker T. Washington’s "Atlanta Compromise Speech" or W.E.B. Du Bois’s "Of Our Spiritual Strivings" from The Souls of Black Folk. After selecting a pair of texts and the similar or related central ideas on which to focus their writing for the End-of-Unit Assessment, students work with the Cross-Text Evidence Collection Tool to collect evidence about how the two authors they selected approach related central ideas.

Student learning is assessed via the textual evidence and analysis reflected on the Cross-Text Evidence Collection Tool. For homework, students review their module texts and expand related notes and annotations in preparation for the End-of-Unit Assessment.
