Lesson Plan 1 2 3 4 5

Date/ Time: 2/12/13 10am and 11:35am

Learning Objectives: Students will be able to demonstrate that they can construct poetry from the everyday. Alignment with Standards: SCSS 6-1.8 Understand the characteristics of poetry (including stanza, rhyme scheme, repetition, and refrain) and drama (including stage directions and the use of monologues). NCCS 9-3w.d Use precise words and phrases, telling details, and sensory language to convey a vivid picture of the experiences, events, setting, and/or characters **(this is a 9th grade standard, because it is the only common core I could find that even mention poetry)** Developmental Appropriateness: This lesson is geared to review the prior knowledge the students have learned about 8 types of poetry. This lesson also gives them an opportunity to be creative, and create a poem from something they use every day.     Social: Students will sit during instruction and work individually to construct their poem. Cognitive: Students familiarity with poetry vocabulary and prior knowledge about poetry in order to complete the assignment. Emotional: Students will need to understand that this process will take time. Physical: Student will need to be capable of writing and speaking.

Cross Curricular: Math: Students will have to make sure their poem’s lines add up to the corresponding number. Visual Art; Students will use Microsoft Publisher to create an eye catching document that contains their poem and other visual additives.

Assessments of Objective: Teacher observation during whole class discussion and individual activities. Review of writing to assess their knowledge of poetry and form. Student’s poems will be taken up and evaluated with a rubric.

Lesson Plan 1 2 3 4 5 Pre- students will be quizzed on their knowledge of the poems that have been discussed so far in this poetry unit During- while students are working on their assignment, they will be asked random questions about types of poetry that that have been reading and writing. Post- at the end of class students will be quizzed again on the 8 types of poetry they have been studying. o The purpose for these assessments is to get the student familiar with the vocabulary so in future lessons they understand the type of poem being read or written.

Accommodations: This class has a lot of early finishers so my plan for them would be to complete a more challenging telephone poem (using a telephone number that has higher number values). They are always encouraged to read when they have completed their work (this will only be implemented if they have completed at least 3 quality poems with more challenging numbers in each poem.) This lesson is a review lesson for content they have already learned in the unit for poetry.  Phonetic: During instruction the teacher will pronounce and have student repeat the vocabulary they have been having difficulty pronouncing. Such as Cinquain, Quatrain, Epitaph. o SIN-Qu-ain o QUA-train o EPI-Taf Syntactic: If students are having trouble with correct usage of words, the teacher will ask the question, “does this make sense” or “what other word(s) would fit better in this line of your poem?” o Student will then reread to hear the difference in the change they made. Semantic: all vocabulary was discussed prior to this lesson, but if an issue is discovered the teacher will have a one on one with the student(s) to clarify any misunderstandings
