Craft, Structure, and Development of Characters and Ideas


In this module, students read, discuss, and analyze nonfiction and dramatic texts, focusing on how the authors convey and develop central ideas concerning imbalance, disorder, tragedy, mortality, and fate. Students also explore how texts are interpreted visually, both on screen and on canvas.

This Module builds upon the key protocols and routines for reading, writing, and discussion that were established in previous Modules. Module 4 is comprised of three units. Each of the module texts is a complex work with multiple central ideas and claims that complement or echo the central ideas and claims of other texts in the module.
