Grade 12 ELA Module 1, Unit 3

Students Studying

In the third unit of Module 12.1, students continue the process of drafting a narrative essay drawing on the material they developed during the writing lessons of 12.1.1. Students identify a variety of techniques they explored while reading The Autobiography of Malcolm X and “Yellow Woman and a Beauty of the Spirit,” ranging from pacing and dialogue to sensory language and telling details, and incorporate select narrative techniques into their own writing. Student essays are a response to one of the Common Application prompts and will be suitable for the college application process.
