Grade 5 ELA Module 1, Unit 1, Lesson 10

Main Ideas in Informational Text: Analyzing a Firsthand Human Rights Account for Connections to Specific Articles of the UDHR

In this lesson students continue to work with the firsthand account they read yesterday, “Teaching Nepalis to Read, Plant, and Vote.” The particular focus today is on finding evidence in the text that directly relates to specific articles of the UDHR. Students physically manipulate evidence in order to begin to understand how to cite specific passages to prove an argument.

This lesson continues to build students’ ability to cite specific evidence, which they will apply both on the end of Unit 1 assessment and throughout Units 2 and 3 when they study Esperanza Rising.
