English - Resource of the week
Moon on the Tides
Looking for interesting ways to revise the AQA GCSE poetry anthology? TES adviser Chantel Mathias has collected a range of resources focusing on Carol Ann Duffy's Medusa and other poems.
What is it?
A handy reference page including:
- A dramatic video reading of Medusa followed by commentary.
- A booklet containing activities and worksheets to help pupils understand language and linguistic techniques in each of the "character and voice" poems from the anthology.
- Visual and audio displays designed for the interactive whiteboard of poems from all four clusters: "character and voice", "place", "conflict" and "relationships".
The collection allows pupils to hear each poem performed and offers a range of tasks including Venn diagrams, definition grids, language analysis, context and a stanza-by-stanza breakdown for close analysis.
A range of revision resources for modern and classical drama, fiction and non-fiction GCSE, AS and A level texts can be found on TES Resources.
