Read how to support students to access prior knowledge about inspiring change and to engage in a first reading of a persuasive speech to get its gist. Lesson 1 includes the routines for writing to learn, talking in pairs or trios, note-taking and tracking learning. It also describes how to introduce the language of persuasion and the big picture of the unit via a graphic of a curricular architecture. Do not miss Lessons 2-4 in order to follow the progression from initial reading comprehension to critical thinking about one’s reading. Development supported by The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.

Agenda for two days

  • Access prior knowledge about inspiring change
    • Quick Write
    • Share in Pairs or Trios
    • Discuss in Whole Group
  • Preview the unit:
    • Architecture
    • Content and habits of thinking
  • Read to get the gist: "Ain't I a Woman?" by Sojourner Truth
  • Discuss comprehension questions
  • Homework: Inspiring change

Standards addressed in the lesson

LS1.1 Formulate judgments about the ideas under discussion and support those judgments with convincing evidence.

Access prior knowledge about inspiring change

Distribute the amplified (see Language Support below) or regular handout titled Inspiring Change, and display a copy of the quotation from Frederick Douglass on the overhead. Read or have at least two students read the quotation to the class.

English learners benefit from having a handout in addition to seeing the information on the overhead. It is helpful for students to hear the different voices of multiple readers and the repetition of the reading assists comprehension, especially English learners' oral comprehension. The Amplified Handouts provided in the unit were developed for English learners with an intermediate level of English proficiency; however, they can be amplified for all students along the continuum by extending language or content study as needed.
Explain to students that Frederick Douglass was a former slave who became one of the principal people speaking out about the abolition of slavery in the 19th century.

Additional information about Frederick Douglass is available on the PBS web site: (External Link)

"If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to freedom and yet deprecate agitation are men who want crops without plowing. They want rain without thunder and lightening. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its mighty waters. This struggle may be a moral one, or it may be physical, but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will."

Questions & Answers

can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?

or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

Yes, Nanotechnology has a very fast field of applications and their is always something new to do with it...
Himanshu Reply
good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world

At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
