Grade 6 ELA Module 3A, Unit 1, Lesson 4

Students working

This lesson is similar in structure to Lesson 3: students work in pairs without any teacher modeling to find the gist and to analyze an excerpt of Dragonwings for point of view, figurative language, tone, and meaning. But the analysis of point of view has a different focus: the focus is Moon Shadow’s point of view of his father.
