Unseen Poetry

(3)
A fully differentiated and resourced lesson that supports students as they analyse two unseen poems and answer both unseen poetry questions (24 marks and 8 marks) in preparation for AQA English Literature Paper 2. With the exam only a few weeks away it is amazing how many schools focus so much of their energies on the anthology poetry in Power and Conflict and Love and Relationships but seem to sideline Unseen Poetry when it is worth 32 marks in total. This lesson is definitely worth getting if you want to help build students’ independence rather than them relying on you to spoon feed them all the necessary information.
