EngageNY Grade 6 ELA Module 4: Building Background Knowledge: Frightful’s Mountain and DDT

Collector: Ann V.

The first unit in Module 4 introduces sixth graders to the central question of the module; do the benefits of DDT outweigh its harmful consequences? Jean Craighead George’s novel, Frightful’s Mountain, is the module's anchor text and provides a bird’s eye view of the challenges of the natural world. Also, researchers analyze informational texts and videos about DDT, evaluating claims and collecting evidence to use in a Fishbowl discussion of the question.
