Guidelines for marking

The following guidelines for marking show one approach to assigning a value to a student’s work. Other approaches may be used that better suit the reporting process of the school. Categories, marks, grades, visual representations or individual comments/notations may all be useful.

Range

Students in this range:

11-15
  • analyse poems interpretively by demonstrating an effective understanding of several poetic techniques and their overall effect
  • compose a competent written response making effective choices about language and content appropriate to purpose, audience and context.
6-10
  • analyse poems interpretively by demonstrating an adequate understanding of several poetic techniques and their overall effect
  • compose an adequate written response making effective choices about language and content appropriate to purpose, audience and context.
1-5
  • analyse poems demonstrating a developing understanding of several poetic techniques and their overall effect
  • compose a written response making some choices about language and content appropriate to purpose, audience and context.

Feedback

Students will be given written feedback from the teacher. Comments will inform them about such things as their interpretation and analysis of the poems selected, their use of appropriate language forms and features, and the structure of their responses. Teacher will give oral feedback about the responses of the whole class.

Future directions

Teachers would build on this unit by engaging students in responses to more complex poems applying their skills, knowledge and understanding to develop critical awareness of the factors affecting poetic meaning and making connections between and among poems (outcome 8).
