Reflection: Poetry: Summative Assessment - Section 3: Assessment


When you choose your poems for the test, I recommend finding two poems of similar length that are distinctly different from each other. The poems I chose were more alike than different and students had a difficult time picking out specific details about each. A positive note is that the poems’ length worked well at just about a page each with illustrations. This made them long enough to contain certain elements, but not so long that students spent more time reading and less time analyzing.
