Grade 3 ELA Module 2B, Unit 3, Lesson 1

Students reading

In Lesson 1, students examine a model of a letter to Mary Pope Osborne urging her to write a book on present-day France. Students became somewhat familiar with this country in the End of Unit 2 Assessment, but they do not need any background information about the country to analyze the way the model was written. From this model, students will begin to identify the criteria for their letter.
