Grade 7 ELA Module 2A, Unit 3, Lesson 9

Students doing written work at their desks.

In this lesson, students work on finalizing their brochures. This lesson runs as a workshop lesson: It begins with a mini lesson, continues with a large chunk of work time, and concludes with a debrief. For work time, consider both how you will spend your time and how you will support students in using this time well. You might confer with each pair, pull several pairs to support more intensively, or provide a formal checkpoint for each pair. Students might benefit from a routine in which you ask partners to commit to a goal for the next 15 minutes, then check in to see if they have reached that goal, then set the next goal.
