Grade 10 ELA Module 2, Unit 3, Lesson 7

Students working together

In this End-of-Unit Assessment, students demonstrate their cumulative understanding of the arguments presented in all three of the unit texts. Students first delineate the argument of each text and then analyze how the authors develop a common claim. Some students, who might benefit from an additional challenge, will respond to an extension prompt that asks students to assess the reasoning and evidence in each text. Students review their annotated text, lesson Quick Writes, discussion notes, homework notes, and tools to organize their ideas before writing multi-paragraph essays independently. The essays should include relevant and sufficient facts, extended definitions, concrete details and quotations.
