Grade 10 ELA Module 1: Unit 3, Lesson 9

Having preparing for an analysis essay about one of the characters from The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan, tenth graders demonstrate their understanding in a mid-unit assessment. They focus on either Jing-Mei or Waverly in an informative writing assignment that focuses on the central ideas from the text. Additionally, learners begin reading an excerpt from H.G. Bissinger's Friday Night Lights.
