Poetic Expression: Methods of Instruction
My lesson plan for this curriculum unit is based on how I will teach this to my students. I intend to teach the lesson for the prescribed week, but I will be flexible in my planning. My students will let me know how successfully they've mastered the objective. Their knowing and not knowing the poetic concepts completely will tell me if I will need to spend more or less time on any particular poetry lesson. I will aim for100% mastery from each student. I will assist my students with this unit in a non-complex way that they will understand. I have high expectations for my students and I will let them know that. The method, in which I teach is based on where they are academically, not where they should be. That is not to say that my students will not be challenged. The challenge is learning and retaining what they've learned. They will read words that require them to think harder and it will push their comprehension level higher. The challenge for them is finding academic success. Their knowledge of poetic expression will be personal and retained. They will know that they are being challenged in many aspects of this unit. I will encourage my students for their efforts.
Poetic Expression is a curriculum unit where the students will express his or her own feelings. My students will have the opportunity to use poetic expression to ease a sad feeling or by trying to find some meaning in their life. I will praise them often. Students love to hear that they're doing a good job. As I stated earlier, your time frame for teaching this unit will vary. I will allow myself to be flexible when it comes to restraints on time. Six weeks of instructional time will be sufficient. If my class needs and extra day or an extra week to grasp a concept, it will be granted.
