Grade 5 ELA Module 1, Unit 3, Lesson 11


  • In advance: Review group scripts and provide written feedback about how well students are sequencing events and using clear transitions.
  • If your students are already familiar with 6 + 1 traits writing, there are many opportunities in this unit to reinforce that work. In this module, students become familiar with more basic aspects of the writing process, including critique and revision.
  • Note that students practice briefly in front of another group at the end of this lesson. This is to help them get more comfortable performing. They have a second rehearsal during Lesson 12.
  • Review Catch and Release and Praise-Question-Suggest protocols (Appendix 1)
