Grade 9 ELA Module 4, Unit 1, Lesson 9


"In this lesson, students read Sugar Changed the World from “By the 1800s, it was clear” to “the Age of Freedom” (p. 70), a key transitional passage in the book that summarizes many of the central ideas and claims of the book so far. Students then read “How Your Addiction to Fast Fashion Kills.” Focused questioning supports students in analyzing “How Your Addiction to Fast Fashion Kills” as an argument piece."
