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.

This resource is designed for KS3 and KS4 unseen poetry. The resource is designed to guide pupils on how to approach and analyse any poem by going through the 10 steps. On the back, there is guidance on how to write up an analysis using a variety of vocabulary. In addition there is a section on how to introduce a comparison to the poetry, again going in step by step. This has proved very useful for all abilities. This resource has been used frequently within my own department and has proven very successful. I would recommend using the resource towards the end of your scheme (after pupils are familiar with different techniques and forms) to promote independent learning. It is good practice for GCSE.
