Point of view

Differentiated ● English Learners- For these students I will change my grading rubric accordingly. I
will provide a dictionary and a text to speech device to help them with reading the
poems. They will also be paired up with an advanced student.

● Special Needs - Students will have a worksheet with phrases on one side and literary
devices on the other. They will match up the literary device with the name rather than
find them on a poem.

● Accelerated (Gifted/Talented)- These students will write their own poem including
literary devices opposed to reading a poem. They will also be paired up with a lower
level learner to help them with the activity.
