EngageNY Grade 11 ELA: Module 2, Unit 1
The texts in Module 2 in the ELA series explore the effects of prejudice and oppression. The 26 lessons in Unit 1 asks students to analyze W.E.B. Du Bois's "Of Our Spiritual Strivings" and Booker T. Washington's "Atlanta Compromise Speech" using the techniques they learned in the previous module. The end-of-unit assessment requires writers to analyze the way Du Bois and Washington craft their arguments.
