Analyzing the Interaction of Central Ideas and Character Development


In this module, students read, discuss, and analyze four literary texts, focusing on the development of interrelated central ideas within and across the texts. This module builds upon the key protocols and routines for reading, writing, and discussion that were established in Module 12.1 and developed throughout Modules 12.2 and 12.3. In order to prepare students for complex, independent text analysis after high school, this module provides fewer scaffolds for text analysis than do prior modules. This module also provides students opportunities to craft narrative, informational, and argument writing pieces that build on writing skills introduced in earlier modules.
