Grade 9 ELA Module 1, Unit 1, Lesson 5

Student graduating

Lesson 5 focuses on students continuing to practice reading closely through annotating text. Students will begin learning how to annotate text using four annotation codes and marking their thinking on the text. Students will reread the Stage 1 epigraph and narrative of St. Lucy’s Home for Girls Raised by Wolves, ending before the paragraph that begins, “That first afternoon, the nuns gave us free rein of the grounds” (pp. 225-227). The text annotation will serve as a scaffold for teacher-led text-dependent questions.
