Grade 10 ELA Module 3: Unit 1, Lesson 3

Choose your words wisely. Scholars take a close look at word choice in an excerpt from The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. Learners work in pairs and groups to discuss how the author's choice of words creates a deeper connection between the reader and the text. Readers then complete a Surfacing Issues Tool and respond to a quick write prompt.
