"In the first lesson of this one-unit module, students begin a guided exploration of the central text of the unit: Sugar Changed the World. Students read “The Age of Honey,” pages 6–8. Students focus their analysis of “The Age of Honey” on determining how the authors introduce and develop central ideas of the text, and consider how these ideas are refined by particular sentences and paragraphs."
