A Strong Conclusion


In this lesson, students read and discuss paragraphs 11–12 of “An Address by Elizabeth Cady Stanton,” in which Cady Stanton argues that giving women the right to vote will benefit future generations of children. Students analyze how Cady Stanton introduces and develops ideas, focusing on her use of figurative language. Students also consider how to develop a strong conclusion in a written response. Students apply their understanding of W.11-12.2.f as they revise their Lesson 5 Quick Writes to include a concluding statement.
