An introduction to poetry

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.
