This lesson asks students to apply RI.9-10.2 and RI.9-10.5 to multiple texts at once, identifying the places in the text where the central ideas are articulated, and analyzing the development of those ideas. This will help prepare them for the second part of the End-of-Unit Assessment, as well as the Performance Assessment.
