Grade 7 ELA Module 4A, Unit 3, Lesson 5

Students working together

In this lesson, students write the draft of their position paper about a screen time recommendation for the AAP. This lesson is written as a timed, on-demand drafting experience not only to keep management of the drafting process simple for the teacher, but also to give students “solo” experience in writing under timed, on-demand circumstances.
