Grade 7 ELA Module 2A, Unit 1, Lesson 19

Student reviewing her work at her desk.

This lesson serves as the culminating discussion of Lyddie. This lesson uses the same protocol as in Module 1 (Unit 1, Lesson 9 and Unit 2, Lesson 8). The students should now be familiar with the protocol, which provides an opportunity for you to circulate and assesses SL.7.1. See supporting materials for a discussion assessment tracker.
• The specific discussion questions have been designed to help students analyze Lyddie’s character traits and how they have shaped the way she reacts to events and other characters. In a way, this lesson gives students a chance to return to the question they were asking in Lessons 2–5: Who is Lyddie?
• The questions also invite students to ponder bigger questions about identity, independence, and freedom. This will deepen their engagement with the text and enrich their understanding of the final chapters.
