GCSE English Literature new spec poetry: Walking Away.
2 lessons exploring the themes, ideas and use of language in the poem 'Walking Away' from the love and relationships cluster for AQA. Levelled around 3-5 of literature mark scheme and includes levelled outcomes in the slides. All resources needed are clearly numbered.
The lesson includes entry ticket activity on unfamiliar vocab in the poem, reading the poem and exploding quotations from the poem - with an A3 resource including images to support understanding and prompt questions for language analysis, there is also then a recap on language devices and a table for students to collate their ideas from the poem. Write up support for a paragraph on 'language used to convey the father's feelings' and then an exit postcard activity to try and promote students to think about wider themes of the poem.
Used for Ofsted and got really great feedback from this.
