GCSE WJEC/Eduqas English Literature. Poetry- The Soldier- Rupert Brooke Analysis lesson

A complete lesson with all resources, learning objectives, success criteria and poem breakdown. This lesson starts with a do now activity where students explore the stereotypical image of a soldier, mind mapping ideas around an image. The PowerPoint then talks through key notes for the context, content, structure, form, language, imagery and tone of the poem. The poem has a step by step analysis, including key questions, so students can expand understanding and knowledge whilst having discussion opportunities to expand deeper meaning. This can be used as a complete lesson, but it can equally be used as a revision aide for students either in or outside of the classroom. All Eduqas questions are thematic, so the next step would be to pose the question ‘How is War presented in The Soldier’. Teachers are able to edit or add to this lesson to aide understanding - this lesson was created for lower ability sets.
