students working in library

This is the first in a two-lesson Mid-Unit Assessment. Students will reread the text and their annotations to determine how Mosley develops and refines his central claim and to draw connections between the central ideas in the text. Students will use an Evidence Collection Tool to gather evidence and explain how that evidence reinforces both the central claim and the connections between the central ideas.
