Grade 10 ELA Module 3, Unit 1, Lesson 6


In this lesson, students reread the excerpt from the previous lesson, focusing on identifying and delineating one of Skloot’s claims, and assessing whether it is relevant and sufficient to support the claim. Student groups identify and delineate one of Skloot’s claims and evaluate evidence that she uses in pages 127–136 to support her claim. Students participate in collaborative group discussion and synthesize their findings on the Lesson 6 Evidence Collection Tool.
