Grade 7 ELA Module 4A, Unit 1, Lesson 9

Teacher helping student

In this lesson, students read and analyze an informational text that acts as a bridge between the building background on neuroscience texts in this unit and the argument texts about the effects of screen time that will follow in Unit 2. This text, “Growing Up Digital,” is more accessible than the text in Lessons 6–8 but deals with similar themes.
