Reflection: Rigor I Get The Gist of Poetry Formative - Section 1: Introduction


So this was the opposite of rigor. My students all did well on this task. I chose to start out easy just to see how they would do with this poem, but the questions really didn't require much thinking. I made the decision based on our district unit pre-assessment. I tried to scaffold my instruction and the assessments, but I shot way too low. My students are much more capable than I originally thought. It served as a good indicator of where to start with them.  However, I could've have used it as a quick check instead of an actual formative quiz.
