Grade 7 ELA Module 4B, Unit 2, Lesson 13

Students working together

In this lesson, students complete the series of lessons that have helped them prepare their research for both a Fishbowl discussion (in Lessons 14 and 15) and the eventual position paper/essay in Unit 3 in which they will answer this prompt: “Which category of water management would be a good place to begin to make the way we manage water more sustainable?” If you have not done so already, preview Unit 3 to be more oriented to this culminating task.
