Grade 5 ELA Module 1, Unit 3, Lesson 1


Students spent all of Unit 2 reading Esperanza Rising: First draft reading of all chapters for homework and more careful study of specific passages from each chapter during class. Thus, Unit 3 is the third read of Esperanza Rising, offering struggling readers an additional opportunity to work with this complex text to further support comprehension of the material. This also provides students an opportunity to go deeper with their analysis in the more creative form of Readers Theater.
