A set of three lessons looking at 3 poems ('Baby - Sitting', 'On My First Sonne', 'The Little Boy Lost / Found') working towards a practise exam question. Prior knowledge of 'Follower' is needed. Used this with my set 5 of 10 and they had so many good ideas that most of mine were unnecesary by the time they appeared on the screen. Had to save the docs as 97 - 2003 docs, so some of the alignments, animations etc might be a bit askew.
