On our page, I have posted our new plan for Sept. 27 to Oct. 9. Because there seems to be some confusion with the TPCASTT form and in executing poetry analysis, I am altering the form and adding another practice poetry analysis before the assessment/evaluation.
On Thursday, I retaught strategies of looking at pieces/parts of a poem, as a way to get to theme/meaning of a poem. I announced our new plan to move forward with Poetry Analysis (another practice analysis and altered form). If this goes well, we will use the newer tool for a final/summative assessment (call it a “test” if you want). If there are still confusions and instances for re-teaching, I will re-evaluate how better to help you with analyzing poetry.
Moving Forward with the above plan will take a bit of time for me to do, so we will shift into a different way to find/interpret meaning from text. On Thursday, I handed out “Literary Perspectives: Seeing the Same Thing in Many Ways: Using Our Critical Lenses,” and we began reading this as a class and understanding the concepts, which we’ll continue on Friday.
