EngageNY Grade 11 ELA Module 1, Unit 3
The third unit in this module uses Virginia Woolf's "A Room of One's Own" as an anchor text. Learners continue to develop their close reading and analysis skill, this time with a nonfiction text. In addition, they work to improve their ability to identify and evaluate the claims and support a writer uses in support of an argument. The unit ends with writers demonstrating what they have learned by crafting an essay in which they analyze the theme of gender inequality in Woolf's essay and Shakespeare's Hamlet.
