Grade 6 ELA Module 2A, Unit 2, Lesson 14

Student drafting written assignment.

In this lesson, students draft the introductory and concluding paragraphs of their End of Unit 2 Assessment: "How Does Bud Use His Rules—to Survive or to Thrive?” literary argument essay. They revisit the model to get a firm grounding in what their introduction and conclusion should look like.
• By the end of this lesson, students should have finished their draft argument essay for their end of unit assessment. Those students who have not finished their draft by the end of this lesson will benefit from taking it home to finish it for homework.
• Be prepared to provide student feedback in Lesson 17 using Rows 1 and 3 of the Literary Argument Essay Rubric, shown to students in Lesson 12. Provide specific positive feedback for at least one thing each student did well (star) and at least one specific area of focus for revision (step).
