Grade 11 ELA Module 2, Unit 2, Lesson 3

Lecture hall

In this lesson, students continue their analysis of "An Address by Elizabeth Cady Stanton." Students read and discuss paragraphs 4–5 (from "But we are assembled to protest against" to "however they may differ in mind, body, or estate"), in which Cady Stanton continues to develop the reasons why women deserve the right to vote, while making a distinction between rights and equality. Focused questioning supports student analysis of Cady Stanton’s organization and development of ideas, and students begin work with an Ideas Tracking Tool to track these key ideas. Student learning is assessed via a Quick Write at the end of the lesson: How do ideas interact and develop over the course of this excerpt?
