    The Guiding Questions:  What gives stories and poems their enduring power? How did Douglass's purpose and audience shape how he told his story?


         In this 8 eight-week module,  students explore the issue of working conditions, both historical and modern day. As they read and discuss both literary and informational text, students analyze how people, settings, and events interact in a text and how an author develops a central claim. Students strengthen their ability to discuss specific passages from a text with a partner, write extended text-based argument and informational pieces, and conduct a short research project. At the end of the module, students will have a better understanding of how working conditions affect workers and the role that workers, the government, consumers, and businesses play in improving working conditions. 

            ELA Standards: RL.7.1,  RL.7.3,  W.7.2a, b, d, f, W.7.4, L.7.4
