Stage 1- (Desired Results)

Established Goal(s): Include content standards, CCSS, course or program objectives, learning outcomes, etc.
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL6.1, 6.2, 6.4, 6.10

Understanding(s): Students will understand that(big ideas)

Essential Question(s):

1.Authors can sometimes make up their own words, but that doesnt 1.What is an author trying to do when they make up words?
meant that they should be skipped over
2.Are made-up words just nonsense or could they possibly
2.Words can be loosely defined by context clues.
mean something?

3.Authors dont always play by the rules.

Students will know:

Students will be able to:

What a portmanteau is

Define words using context clues

A new and rather difficult poem

Construct meaning from apparent nonsense through


patiently taking apart the text
Figure out how to say unknown words via context clues
increasing reading fluency.

Stage 2- (Desired Results- How do you know they know? Collecting Data)
Performance Task
-Through what
authentic
performance task(s)
will students
demonstrate the
desired
understandings?
- By what criteria
will performances
of understanding be
judged?
Other Evidence

FreshGrade
behavioral data
for the
chunking and
inference
exercise
(probably not
for Mrs. Boyles
class).

Their Do Now will be to figure out what a portmanteau is and write down as many as they
can think of alone or with a partner.
We will read through Jabberwocky as a class. On the first read through, students will just
listen and silently try to figure out what the poem is saying.
The second time through, they will circle all of the words that they dont knowthere will
be a lot of them.
After their second read-through, they will work through their Chunking and Inferences
graphic organizer.
They will then meet with a partner and compare their answers and try to create a better
reading of Jabberwocky together.
Their Ticket out the Door will be to write down a one sentence summary of what happened
in Jabberwocky.
Desired Understandings: Concepts and Skills
Data Collected
I want for them to start recognizing that words they
come across that they dont know could be
combinations of words that they do know. Along with
that, the ability to define words using context words is
essential, the chunking graphic organizer will help
them with both of these skills.
