Grade 5 ELA Module 1, Unit 2, Lesson 10


This lesson begins to lay the foundation for students’ End of Unit 2 Assessment, in which they write an essay about how Esperanza changes over time. During Lesson 10, do not worry if students’ understanding of Esperanza’s development is just beginning to form. They will revisit this idea repeatedly in future lessons.
