KS3, KS4, poetry, Romantics, dramatic monologue, Browning "The Laboratory", writer's methods, effect

This is a lesson planned for an able year 9 class as part of a unit on poetry and developing the skills that they’ll need for GCSE. It uses Browning’s “The Laboratory” and there is a focus, through questioning, on the methods that the writer uses to suggest the character of the speaker in the poem. At the end of the lesson, the pupils are asked to focus independently on two further methods (alliteration and contrast) and explain their effect in the context of developing the character of the speaker. There is a brief mention of the fact that Browning was influenced by the Romantic poets and the homework after the study of the poem is for the pupils to write an extended paragraph (perhaps bolstered by independent research) about the attitude of the Romantics to the French Revolution.

KS3, KS4, poetry, reading, writing, simile, analysis, crr, WW1, war poetry, cover

This lesson uses Margaret Postgate Cole’s “The Falling Leaves”. The lesson was originally planned as cover. There is a short powerpoint (only 9 slides and one of those slides is a printable) accompanied by a worksheet which has a copy of the poem together with six questions, two of which are on the poem’s structure and its effect; the others focus on Cole’s use of simile and its effect. The main focus of the lesson is on the use of simile. Once the analysis of the poem is done, the pupils are then asked to create their own similes to go alongside an image of a WW1 soldier in a trench. Having done this, they are asked to use their similes along with four of Cole’s words to produce a piece of creative writing, either in poetry or in prose.
