Individual reading and writing - selecting and analysing poems for an anthology : Additional Information
End of Stage 4 (end of Year 8)
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.
Students in this range:
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.
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).
