Mid-Unit Assessment


The Mid-Unit 2 Assessment has two parts, taking two lessons to complete. In Part 1, students read a new myth and plot the narrative structure on the same Narrative Structure note-catcher used in Lesson 6 of this unit. Students show what they know using a fresh text which lets attend to the skills being assessed, rather than exert effort to comprehend a passage from the play and then apply the skills being assessed. Since students practiced this skill with a text that is in the form of a narrative with a narrator (rather than the play, which is mostly dialogue), they will use this new myth on the assessment Just as they did in Lesson 6, students use their completed note-catcher to write a summary of the myth.
