EngageNY Grade 6 ELA Module 3b: Understanding Perspectives: Sustaining the Oceans
The topic of ocean conservation and the impact of human activities on ocean life is the focus of three units in Module 3B. The first unit challenges sixth graders to read Mark Kurlansky’s illustrated book, World without Fish: How Kids Can Help Save the Oceans, then study how he introduces, illustrates, and develops his ideas to convey his point of view. The second module examines how an author’s point of view and perspective is influenced by his or her geographic location. Module 3B ends with scholars diving into case studies about overfishing and sustainable fishing methods.
