Grade 5 ELA Module 2A, Unit 2, Lesson 13

INTERVIEWING MEG LOWMAN: WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A RESPONSIBLE SCIENTIST? (PAGES 37-39)

In this lesson, students write interview questions that they would like to ask Meg Lowman about her research. This activity serves as an engaging way for them to reread and look back into text for the purpose of promoting deeper understanding of the topic. It also gives students the chance to revisit and enhance their understanding of both the structure and the purpose of interviews, and of how interviews are used to communicate scientific research.
