Grade 6 ELA Module 3A, Unit 2, Lesson 1


This lesson introduces students to the performance task, which they will complete at the end of Unit 3. The reason this is being introduced so soon is to serve as a bridge between Unit 1, which centers on the novel Dragonwings and Unit 2, which is where students are introduced to the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire through an informational text—a first person account of the event.
