EngageNY Grade 6 ELA Module 3a, Unit 2: Comparing Varying Points of View of the Same Topic or Event

Collector: Ann V.

In the second unit in the 3A module, scholars examine how an author’s purpose affects point of view. They compare excerpts from “Comprehending the Calamity,” Emma Burke’s informational text about the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, to Laurence Yup’s character Moon Shadow’s point of view of the quake. As a final performance task, writers detail how the texts differ due to the authors’ purpose.
