How do you assess your students when they write poetry? It's hard, right? It's like grading artwork... not easy!
Well, here's a guide to help you assess their own original work and their thinking about published poems. These Guidelines are for a capstone project that will nicely wrap up a poetry unit of study in your elementary school classroom. (It's a lot of work, but it definitely shows off what the kids know about poetry!)
Please rate this product after you've used it in your classroom. Thank you!
I haven't used this packet in my classroom yet since school is not in session. I am confident from the information provided that I will have a better way to assess the poetry my classes will write. I am excited to get started!
I am a former fourth and fifth grade classroom teacher who is now a part-time literacy consultant. I have two master's degrees: one in elementary education from Hunter College and one in literacy from Teachers College (Columbia University).
