Grade 6 ELA Module 3A, Unit 1, Lesson 3

Teacher helping student

In preparation for the mid-unit assessment, this lesson begins to “gradually release” students to work more independently. They work in pairs without any teacher modeling to find the gist and then to analyze an excerpt of Dragonwings for point of view, figurative language, tone, and meaning.
