Grade 10 ELA Module 1, Unit 3


In the third unit of Module 1, students develop and continue to solidify the skills and practices of close reading, vocabulary acquisition, participation in diverse discussions, and evidence collection and organization, all of which they have been building throughout this module. Students continue to engage with the development of central ideas and characters in their analysis of Amy Tan’s The Joy Luck Club and expand their understanding of informational standards as they work through the complex questions raised by H. G. Bissinger’s literary non-fiction text, Friday Night Lights.
