'In Cardigan Market' by Brian Morris - 'Auntie Jane Fish' - GCSE English Literature NEA

A full PowerPoint teaching ‘In Cardigan Market’ ready for the Non-Examination Assessment for WJEC English Literature. The PowerPoint initially shows background information on Cardigan market using video clips and engages with the main ideas of the poem before introducing it. The PowerPoint takes pupils through an analysis of the poem, including analysing the sonnet structure and how the use of iambic pentameter has a purpose. Specific language analysis is shown to help improve depth of analysis. Wider knowledge of certain aspects of the poem are revealed throughout. This PowerPoint is used alongside my ‘A Peasant’ resources to allow close comparison for the NEA.
