Grade 10 ELA Module 3, Unit 3, Lesson 4

Student in classroom

Students begin writing their research-based argument papers. The lesson begins with peer review of the in-text citations students inserted in their Outline Tools. Students then learn about the purpose and components of an effective introduction. Through discussion and examination of an exemplar and non-exemplar introduction, students further develop their understandings of how to write an effective introduction.
