A learning outcome makes the intention of each activity clear to both teacher and students. Additional guidance comes from an assessment rubric: by making learning transparent for the student and the teacher, it shows where the student is at and what their next step in learning is, based on the three progressions of HOT – surface, deep and conceptual. All books are packed with attractive blackline masters, including an illustrated version of each poem.
