Unit Assessment: No flies fly into a closed mouth.


In this End-of-Unit Assessment, students use textual evidence from “A Genetics of Justice” to craft a formal, multi-paragraph essay analyzing how the sentence “No flies fly into a closed mouth” (par. 21) develops and refines an idea from the essay. Students review their annotated text, lesson Quick Writes, discussion notes, homework notes, and tools to organize their ideas. Students then develop their essays with relevant and sufficient facts, extended definitions, concrete details and quotations.
