KS3, KS2 Poetry, "Rain", Shel Silverstein, symbolism - good link to "Holes" by Louis Sachar

KS3, KS2 Poetry, "Rain", Shel Silverstein, symbolism - good link to "Holes" by Louis Sachar

This is a short and simple lesson with the aim: explain the effect of rain as a symbol. Demonstrate understanding through writing. The poem used is Shel Silverstein’s “Rain”. The lesson begins with a hinge question to assess what pupils already understand about symbolism. There are then two questions (best used in a sort of pitch-pause-pounce-bounce kind of way) which ask how rain could be used as a symbol in two different contexts, that of a funeral and that of a desert. The lesson then introduces Silverstein’s poem and points out that it can be read on two levels, both as a nonsense poem for children but, with more depth, with the rain as a symbol. Pupils are asked to explain what they think the rain could symbolise, and why. I planned this to work alongside Louis Sachar’s novel “Holes” though it would work as a stand-alone lesson or as part of a unit on poetry.

Student Worksheet : Caged Bird by Maya Angelou

Student Worksheet : Caged Bird by Maya Angelou

The world that we breathe in today has had many contrasting firsts: we have had bid adieu to apartheid , yet have chosen leaders who would like to build ‘ huge ‘ ‘walls’. We have had gross injustice meted out to people lower in the power hierarchy and yet, there are ubiquitous campaigns like # me-too that would hold no bar to name the corrupted tools of power. Hence, a teacher of Caged Bird in this day and age does not have to talk about merely the social pressures on the African-Americans and the Civil Rights Movement of 1966: the canvas and the ‘sky ‘ for the discussion and several simultaneous interpretations is unimaginably expansive.

Unseen Poetry Session AQA

Unseen Poetry Session AQA

This session explains what is required of students in the final section of AQA Literature Paper 2. It incorporates an activity advised at the AQA Hub Meeting, where students work in groups to produce a poster based on a poem displayed on the wall - however, only one student is allowed to visit the poem at a time. The student should then bring back key words, images, methods, etc., to add to the poster. The posters are then presented to the class, or if in a bigger group, to another group of students. This effectively conveys the message that all responses are appropriate and that everyone can access a poem in some way. This could be run in a Hall with multiple students, in a classroom or as small group intervention. Th second part of the lesson covers the comparison question, making sure that students understand to only write about methods. It includes a writing frame and modelled examples using the AQA endorsed structure of ‘both, both, however’. This lesson could easily be repeated again and again with different poems.
