This lesson will be students’ first exposure to informational texts in this module. Students will review and be reintroduced to an informational text standard (RI.9-10.2) and engage in a brief discussion of the difference between informational and literary texts. This lesson introduces Walter Mosley’s first major claim in his article “True Crime”—about Western civilization’s relationship to guilt, which propels our interest in crime stories.
