This download provides two PowerPoints, designed to be used over two lessons. The first introduces the poem to the class and has a class activity. The second provides you with a fully annotated version of the poem, including meaning, imagery, techniques and language features. I have also included an ‘Exposure’ language feature worksheet and a modified version for lower ability. The final sheet is a question sheet, this can either be given as homework or as an extension task.
Two PowerPoint slides to teach year 9/10 students about poetry. The first PowerPoint introduces the class to the AQA anthology, looking at the themes of Power and Conflict. The second PowerPoint looks at the relevant literary devices that students will need while annotating the poems in the Power and Conflict cluster. This download will also include a useful literary terms definition sheet that can be either handed out to the students or used as a weekly spelling test sheet. It also includes a ‘literary device match-up’ using the devices from the PowerPoint slides.
