ELA: Module 3A-Objectives
This module focuses on a deep study of the classic tale Peter Pan.  Students will consider how writers capture a reader's imagination.  We begin by analyzing narratives with a particular focus on character, then practice crafting opinions and supporting reasons about specific questions related to Peter Pan's central characters. We examine the author's craft, specifically the use of dialogue and vivid language.
