Blessing by Imitaz Dharker - Culture Poems - Unseen Poetry Lesson - Language Analysis

This is a full lesson on Blessing by Imitaz Dhaker originally from the Poems from Different Cultures cluster. This poem can be used in isolation to teach poetry skills, or as an unseen poem or can be used as part of a bundle for a poetry unit on Different Cultures (see my other resources for more!). Links nicely to the unseen poetry section for AQA literature paper 2.

The lesson was used on an interview wherein I got the job - so has stood its test! It includes language analysis and context on Dhaker, as well as exploration of the meaning of a blessing - it leads into extended analysis and eventually peer assessment.
