Grade 10 ELA Module 4: Unit 1, Lesson 4

High schoolers read the final section of E. B. White’s Death of a Pig and take a close look at the impact of the words and tone he used. Learners discuss in pairs their homework from the previous night, answer questions about the text, and write in their vocabulary journals. They finish by sharing their thoughts about E.B. White's word choices by responding to a writing prompt.
