Mid-Unit Assessment: Evidence-Based Claims


In this 10.1.3 Mid-Unit Assessment, students draw upon their analysis of “Rules of the Game” or “Two Kinds” to craft a multi-paragraph response to one of the following prompts: (1) In “Rules of the Game,” to what extent does Waverly meet her mother’s expectations that she master “the art of invisible strength” over the course of the chapter? or (2) In “Two Kinds” Jing-mei states, “My mother believed you could be anything you wanted to be in America” (p.132). To what extent does Jing-mei’s story support this belief?” Students review their annotated texts, lesson Quick Writes, discussion notes, homework notes, and tools to organize their ideas. Students then develop their responses with relevant and sufficient evidence.

Bilingual Language Progressions

These resources, developed by the New York State Education Department, provide standard-level scaffolding suggestions for English Language Learners (ELLs) to help them meet grade-level demands. Each resource contains scaffolds at multiple levels of language acquisition and describes the linguistic demands of the standards to help ELA teachers as well as ESL/bilingual teachers scaffold content for their English learning students.
