EngageNY Grade 7 ELA: Module 2a, Unit 1: Building Background Knowledge: What Are Working Conditions, and How Do They Affect Workers?

Collector: Ann V.

The 20 lessons that make up the Module 2a Unit 1 collection focus on building background knowledge of working conditions in American factories during the industrial era. Using their knowledge of these conditions, Class members read Lyddie by Katherine Paterson—a novel about a young woman employed by Lowell Mills, who must decide whether or not to sign a petition protesting conditions in the mill. The unit ends with students crafting an argument essay about what Lyddie should do.
