Grade 7 ELA Module 4B, Unit 2, Lesson 3

Computer help

Today’s lesson is students’ introduction to the overarching research question of the unit: “How do industry and agriculture currently manage water? What strategies exist for industry and agriculture to manage water better?” The overarching research question serves as the “big idea” for students’ research; it will serve as the lens through which the research is focused, as the focus questions have done in previous writing assignments. The overarching research question should be referred to regularly throughout instruction as a means of anchoring students’ work.
