These exit cards/exit tickets are a formative assessment for CCSS Reading Literature Standard 4. They can be used throughout the unit to assess student progress.
They use a poem by Emily Dickinson which is in the pubic domain.
They are aligned with CCSS RL.6.4, RL.7.4, RL.8.4, and RL.9-10.4.
They include a student self assessment component to help students take responsibility for their own learning.
Only takes 5 minutes. Easy to do at the end of class.
They are easy to differentiate with for students of different learning levels. For more advanced students, consider also requiring an annotation or for students to circle all the words with strong connotations. For lower level students, provide some definitions on the board.
