Grade 9 ELA Module 3, Unit 1, Lesson 4

Student in classroom

In this lesson, students will read and analyze pages 14–16 of Animals in Translation (from “The other major contribution behaviorists made” to “no one had ever seen before”). Students will continue to examine Grandin’s analysis of behaviorism and ethology, and consider how this portion of text further refines and develops her central idea that autism has made understanding animals easy.
