An interactive approach to poetry

What is it?

TES English has produced new interactive resources to accompany lessons for the AQA GCSE poetry anthology Moon on the Tides. These include illustrated e-poetry booklets with embedded MP3 audio readings of poems in the four clusters that make up the poetry unit: conflict, character and voice, place and relationships.

Featured poets include John Agard, Carol Ann Duffy, Simon Armitage and Thomas Hardy.

How to use the resources

- Use them as starters or plenaries.

- Explain and analyse the design and images of poems in the e-poetry booklets.

- Encourage student designs for an alternative e-poetry booklet.

- Explain and analyse the soundmusic in the readings.

- Use them to support other class-based, homework or revision activities.
