Robert Frost; The Road Not Taken

This project-based learning is geared to the Common Core State Standards for 4th grade in Language Arts. It expects the student to identify the many different themes of poetry and correlate them into one specific theme of their choice. They are to find poems from different poets and of different styles. While also, creating their own personal poem that is related to the theme they had chosen. Once they have created their own theme binder, a collection of their poems, become a poet themselves, they are then to present their theme, favorite poem, and personal poem in such a manner in front of the class that shows their understandings of the unit and creativity with their peers and teacher.This entails the Instructional Strategies from Dean as Setting Objectives and Providing Feedback, Summarizing and Note Taking, and Identifying Similarities and Differences.
