Grade 8 ELA Module 2A, Unit 2, Lesson 1

Student discussing her work with teacher.

In this lesson, students will work with vocabulary words, mostly adjectives, from all the previous chapters in the novel in an activity called I Have/Who Has. This activity enables students to practice listening skills and work with a full set of 25 words while being responsible for only one or two words to participate in the activity.
• Students will also answer text-dependent questions about Chapters 11 and 13 using Three Threes in a Row, a protocol introduced in Module 1, Unit 1, Lesson 10. This activity allows students to work in groups to answer a row of questions before being the “experts” for their classmates during the circulation time.
