 In Topic C, students know that the slope of a line describes the rate of change of a line. Students first encounter slope by interpreting the unit rate of a graph (8.EE.B.5). In general, students...

 In Topic B, students work with constant speed, a concept learned in Grade 6 (6.RP.A.3), but this time with proportional relationships related to average speed and constant speed. These relationships...

 In Topic A, students begin by transcribing written statements using symbolic notation. Then, students write linear and nonlinear expressions leading to linear equations, which are solved using...

 It is recommended that students have some experience with the lessons in Topic D from Module 2 before beginning these lessons. In Lesson 13 of Topic C, students are presented with a general proof...

 Topic B begins with the definition of similarity and the properties of similarities. In Lesson 8, students learn that similarities map lines to lines, change the length of segments by factor r, and...

 Topic A begins by demonstrating the need for a precise definition of dilation instead of “same shape, different size” because dilation will be applied to geometric shapes that are not polygons. ...

 Optional Topic D begins the learning of Pythagorean Theorem. Students are shown the “square within a square” proof of the Pythagorean Theorem. The proof uses concepts learned in previous topics of...

 During today’s assessment, students independently analyze how the author uses allusions, perspective, and text structure to convey meaning in a piece of literature.

 In Topic C, on the definition and properties of congruence, students learn that congruence is just a sequence of basic rigid motions. The fundamental properties shared by all the basic rigid motions...

 The opening of this lesson is an opportunity for students to add to their Atticus notecatchers. For this, student answers will vary. Accept any logical, textsupported additions. • This lesson...

 Topic B is a critical foundation to the understanding of congruence. All the lessons of Topic B demonstrate to students the ability to sequence various combinations of rigid motions while...

 • In this lesson, students will practice the comparing and contrasting that they have learned in this unit: comparing and contrasting text structures, as well as comparing and contrasting the text...

 The beginning of this lesson builds in more practice for students to analyze the meaning and structure of a poem, a skill introduced in Lesson 15. However, in this lesson, the analysis does not go as...

 In the Opening, students focus on Chapter 6, even though they read both Chapters 6 and 7 for homework. This is intentional, since Chapter 6 is more integral to the work of the module, and since...

 Throughout Topic A, on the definitions and properties of the basic rigid motions, students verify experimentally their basic properties and, when feasible, deepen their understanding of these...

 In this lesson, students do a close read of Chapter 5 to practice analyzing figurative language, as well as making inferences about the text. • For the opening, students engage in QuizQuizTrade....

 In Topic B, students’ understanding of integer exponents is expanded to include the concept of magnitude as a measurement. Students learn to estimate how big or how small a number is using magnitude...

 In this lesson, students practice writing a summary of a literary work. These summaries are useful formative assessment data. Review student writing, provide meaningful feedback, and inform...

 • This lesson introduces an important theme in the novel, the Golden Rule. The Gallery Walk introduction of this theme incorporates a wide variety of worldviews, philosophies, and religions. •...

 In Topic A, students begin by learning the precise definition of exponential notation where the exponent is restricted to being a positive integer. In Lessons 2 and 3, students discern the structure...

 Students continue to work with Chapter 2 in this lesson. This is done intentionally to allow more time for students to get into the novel as well as to establish the reading and writing routines they...

 Summary writing of To Kill a Mockingbird is introduced in this lesson, but it not assessed until the MidUnit 2 Assessment. Collect the summaries in the next lesson and give students positive...
