Rationale:
Interval of instruction necessary to address goal: Solo Period (Four consecutive weeks)
Assessments,
Scoring and
Criteria
STAGE 2
Planned assessments and criteria used to determine levels of performance:
Results:
Are all desired results being appropriately addressed?
Desired results are for students to be able to identify different forms of poetry.
Desired results are for students to be able to write poetry in different forms using
figurative language to enhance expression.

Evaluative Criteria: *(This is where you start to develop your formative assessments)
2013 2014 SY [UNIT PLAN TEMPLATE]

4

What criteria will be used in each assessment to evaluate attainment of the desired
results? Regardless of the format of the assessment, what qualities are most important?

Formative Assessments:
Written Journal Responses/Prompts
Selected response/short answer assessments
Quick Write: Using a ticket out the door strategy, students will write 5 sentences
on different types of poetry.
Informal checks of understanding:
Thumbs Up/Thumbs Down: The teacher will ask a question regarding
different forms of poetry. Students must correctly identify if the
statement is true or false using thumbs up/down.
Fist for five: Students put their heads down on the desk and raise their
fingers according to their level of understanding.
Self-Check (checklist)
Class discussions
Rubrics will be used to assess writing/presentation of poems.
Observations will be used throughout instruction to monitor student progress in
the unit.
Debate-Team: Students will be given the prompt, What is your favorite type of
poetry and why? Students will share thoughts and ideas with other classmates.

Performance Task:
Students will show that they really understand by evidence of
How will students demonstrate their understanding through complex performance?
Creating a poetry book that includes students written pieces of different forms of
poetry.
Oral presentation of one of their poems from their poetry book.

Other Evidence:
Students will show they have achieved Stage 1 goals by
Quiz/Test
Worksheets
Check lists
Student self-assessment/Peer assessment
Quick Write: E.g. What makes poetry a unique form of writing?

Expected Targets
STAGE 3
Goals:
What is the goal
for (or type of)
each learning
Starting point for student performance groups
*Pre-Assessment:
What pre-assessments will you use to check students prior knowledge, skill levels, and
potential misconceptions? How will you monitor students progress toward acquisition,
meaning, and transfer? How will students get the feedback that they need?

event? Pre-Assessment Quiz: Students will be given a multiple choice and open-ended
quiz to check their prior knowledge about the topic.
KWL Chart: In groups or as a class, students will write out a chart of everything
they know and want to know (or wonder) about poetry. The learned section will
be saved for the end of the unit.

Expected target for each student performance group:

ME (Meets with Excellence)-0%
92-100%
MP (Meets Proficiency)-60%
72-91%
DP (Developing Proficiency)-40%
62-71%
WB (Well Below Proficiency)-0%
61% and below

Rationale for expected targets:
Does the learning plan reflect principles of learning and best practice? Will the plan be
effective and engaging for students?

Looking at students HSA Testing and Star Reading Test, I have rationalized the expected
target for student performance. My Language Arts class is the remedial (low-leveled)
students, based on testing scores. Therefore, I have no Meets with Excellence students
but many that fall into the Meets Proficiency and Developing Proficiency category. I
expect all students to at least be developing proficiency if not higher.

Instructional
Strategies
STAGE 3
(CT and US will
determine how
many lesson plans
you will need to
submit for your
unit)
Instructional strategies for each level of performance:
Learning Events:

-Are all three types of goals (acquisition, meaning, and transfer) addressed in the
learning plan?
-Does the learning plan reflect principles of learning and best practices?
-Is there tight alignment with Stages 1 & 2?
Is the plan likely to be engaging and effective for all students?
