Grade 5 ELA Module 1, Unit 2, Lesson 4

INFERRING ABOUT CHARACTERS BASED ON HOW THEY RESPOND TO CHALLENGES (CHAPTER 4: “LOS HIGOS/FIGS”)

This lesson builds directly on Lesson 3, and reinforces a pattern of analysis that students will use throughout their study of the novel. They will consider the challenges characters face (including but not limited to human rights challenges), how the characters respond, and how the characters’ response helps us understand that character and the themes of the novel. Today students specifically begin to compare and contrast Esperanza’s responses to those of other main characters.
