Grade 7 ELA Module 4B, Unit 2, Lesson 1

Students working together

The purpose of this lesson is to give students a sense of how differing arguments can support the same claim. In categorizing the types of evidence the authors use, the students will begin to see how authors choose both the quality and the quantity of their evidence carefully, with attention to the differing effects that certain types of evidence have upon the audience.
