Grade 9 ELA Module 3, Unit 3

Student in library

In this unit, students engage in the writing process with the goal of synthesizing and articulating their evidence-based research perspective in writing. The end product of this unit is a final draft of a research paper that articulates the conclusions gleaned from research throughout Module 9.3. In order to do this, students must synthesize and draw independent conclusions from information across multiple texts and articulate their research findings in an organized, cogent, and formal informational essay. As part of this process, students engage in a writing cycle in which they self-edit, provide peer reviews, and continually revise their work.
