EngageNY Grade 10 ELA Module 3: Researching Multiple Perspectives to Develop a Position
Building on what they learned in Modules 10.1 and 10.2, about inquiry-based and evidence-based research, sophomores investigate topics that have multiple perspectives. The core text of Unit 1 is Rebecca Skloot’s The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. In Unit 2, class members learn how to gather and assess sources, and develop claims and counterclaims. For the culminating unit, writers synthesize their research and craft an argument essay that presents their claims and conclusions that support a position of their own.
