Putting the Puzzle TogetherPlanning Process and Integration
How can one incorporate all the different curricular pieces to help students achieve more?Essential Question
Planning with the STANDARDS in mindViewed the Polk County Curriculum MapsViewed the 09/10 Language Arts NGSSS standardsCompared both itemsWrote my Student Learning MapAsked peer teacher to reviewBegan planning my unit using ToolboxIt is important for me as a teacher to ensure I am covering all the standards and not just the curriculum map.Looked for standards missing from county mapsUsing scaffolding and kid-friendly languageAdded scaffolding (for myself and for students)Split up vocabulary words (no more than 5-6 key vocab for each concept)I reworked it so I would be cognizant of the standards I was covering throughout the unit.

Final EATS Lesson of the UnitHANDOUT DIn my lesson I wanted Engaged students To use relevant materials Include color-coding text Have frequent checks for understanding Be fun for the students Teach in DETAIL how to analyze a poem with TPCASTT Challenge students to think outside the box
Planning my EATS LessonHANDOUT D
First, I needed to review essential vocabulary with them.Introduce them to the TPCASTT acronym Have students take two-column notesUse the WRITE-COMPARE-SHARE structure of CISM to keep students engaged throughout the lessonEnsure students were able to identify symbolism and figurative language in a poem/text.Structuring my EATS LessonHANDOUT DI scripted out my lesson plan for ME!I put approximate times on my lesson plan and tried my absolute BEST to stick to them.I knew already what I wanted them to know about poetry before they left the class and I wrote that on my lesson plan as a reminder.I used a consistent strategy so, when I didnt pay attention to my lesson plan, students called me out on skipping a step in the process.
