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

Stacks of books.

In this lesson, students will continue the two-lesson cycle. Students read the third stanza from the poem “If ” and continue to develop knowledge of the structure of the poem and the use of punctuation. A new word replacement vocabulary strategy is introduced in this lesson to give students more options when working out the meaning of unfamiliar vocabulary.
• In this lesson, students compare the experience of listening to an audio version of the poem and reading the poem in preparation for the mid-unit assessment. If technology is not available to play an audio version of the text, you will need to read it aloud in a performance style.
