Power and Conflict Poetry - Hughes' Bayonet Charge

Power and Conflict Poetry - Hughes' Bayonet Charge

Perfect for mixed ability GCSE classes, this printable lesson helps pupils analyse Hughes' 'Bayonet Charge' by exploring its meaning (AO1) through language/structure (AO2) and considering how it presents wider ideas/issues (AO3). With model answers and differentiated questioning, this powerpoint can also be printed so pupils can independently explore the meaning (AO1), analyse the poem (AO2) and establish its links to wider context over 3 lessons. Pupils are given model answers for analytical and comparative writing so can then analyse the poem in prose and compare it to different poems in the anthology. In the final lesson, pupils are given the opportunity to write their own comparative essay following an exam answer.
