Alfred Tennyson’s, ‘From In Memoriam: VII ‘Dark house, by which once more I stand’ is fully explored in this dynamic 16 slide PowerPoint lesson. This resource is designed to work alongside the Edexcel International Advanced Subsidiary/Advanced Level in English Literature (Victorian Verse). Through a series of structured exercises and tasks the students gain meaning through an exploration of the content, language and structure elements of the poem. I have used this resource to lead my teaching in class, as a homework/distance learning resource and also as a tool of revision – all have worked well for the students.
This PowerPoint lesson contains a starter activity, an author biography, a glossary of terms, an overview, summary and analysis questions on each stanza, an academic writing task, an extension task, a homework assignment and a plenary. This is a complete resource that requires no work from you. Enjoy!
