GRADE 7: MODULE 2A: UNIT 1: LESSON 14 Writing an Argumentative Essay: Crafting a Claim Opening Meeting Students’ Needs A. Entry Task: Checking for Understanding (10 minutes) Distribute the Checking for Understanding, Chapters 18 and 19 entry task to students as they enter. Remind students that they can use their Reader’s Notes, but not the book itself, to answer these questions. Direct students to complete the entry task individually. As they do so, circulate to check the Reader’s Notes (Chapters 18–19) for completion. Cold call students to get responses to the entry task. Listen for students to understand that calloused literally means to have toughened hands and figuratively means to have a hardened or unfeeling heart. Point out the disjointed syntax of the last sentence. Instead of being a complete thought, it’s a series of phrases. Explain the way this reflects both Lyddie’s thoughts (she is trying not to think too much about her situation) and mood (she feels broken, disjointed, depressed). Ask students to turn to a partner and predict what Lyddie will do now. Cold call on a few pairs to share out. Remind students that in the next few lessons they will be working on their essays and not discussing the reading. However, they must remember to pace themselves and read Chapters 20–23. The Reader’s Notes for these are due in Lesson 19. Post definitions for the Reader’s Dictionary and prompt students to revise their Reader’s Dictionaries as necessary. Finally, direct students’ attention to the learning targets. Read them aloud and tell students that today they will be looking at the evidence they have been collecting in order to make a claim.
