Grade 10 ELA Module 3, Unit 2


In this unit, students continue the research process begun in Unit 1. Students begin to deeply engage in this iterative, non-linear process with the goal of deepening students’ understanding of topics and issues that may lead to argument writing. Students continue to learn how to use the inquiry-based research process to gather, assess, read, and analyze sources, while organizing and synthesizing research to develop claims and counterclaims about a specific problem-based question.
