Grade 9 ELA Module 1, Unit 2


In this unit, students will continue to practice and refine routines such as close reading, annotation, identification of evidence, and participation in collaborative discussions. Students will study the authors’ use of language to create meaning and build characters. They will also build vocabulary, write routinely, and, at the end of the unit, develop an essay that synthesizes ideas in the two texts.
