I teach English Lit and Lang at IGCSE and IB Level. Resources here are mainly for these courses but I often upload KS3 resources too. Currently I am working on poetry resources for the IGCSE Lit course starting in 2023. I hope you find them useful.

This is an analysis of an extract of the Kamala Harris VP Nomination Speech (follow the link to the full video below). It provides students with an annotated copy of the original text transcript, and an intro and thesis, something they often have trouble formulating. Also included are some past papers, model paragraphing, and essay plans. I hope these resources are useful in preparing for this year’s IB Paper 1 - they could be used either in class, online, or for revision.

The PowerPoint includes: mindmapping the title, comprehension questions for every line, a variety of activities, line by line analysis, contextual information, rhyme scheme, essay questions, criteria, and an example colour-coded paragraph. Also, I have included a link to my YouTube analysis and a 1000 word essay. It is very thorough and detailed, easy to follow, and with logical animations. It will take between two and three hours to cover fully.

A detailed PowerPoint that provides: prereading activities, about the author, annotations, comprehension questions, line by line technical/language analysis, and three essay questions to challenge students. I have also written an example essay, which is also included. Students like the fun activity which involves them comparing the poem to the opening scene of David Lynch’s movie, Blue Velvet. I hope you like it. Here is a link to my supplementary YouTube video too: https://youtu.be/vTm92Pokmc0

This lesson features: discussion questions, followed by line by line questions to help students engage with the poem either before or during the lesson. Next is a line by line analysis, highlighting some techniques and providing interpretation. Then we have an essay question, model introduction, and first analytical paragraph. The next paragraph has been started, and quotes provided - students should finish it off. I have also included a link to my supplementary YouTube video which acts as an introduction/revision tool for students. Students are making a Poetry Portfolio, where they stick in each poem, annotate, and analyse with the 4 big questions, which I have included at the end of the PP.
