Grade 10 ELA Module 3: Unit 1, Lesson 12

First impressions are very important. Scholars read two excerpts from The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. One describes the family's negative opinion of the hospital, while the other discusses them meeting a very kind doctor. Learners work together to determine how the two events changed the family's ideas about the medical community. Readers use their vocabulary notebooks, pair share, and respond to a quick write prompt to better understand the text.
