Grade 9 ELA Module 1, Unit 1, Lesson 15

How much progress has Claudette really made at the end of "St. Lucy's Home for Girls Raised by Wolves"? Ninth graders note evidence for and against Claudette's successful adaptation into human society with a graphic organizer. Additionally, they complete an exit slip in which they write a short response about Claudette's journey with evidence from the text.
