This lesson is produced by Quakers in Britain. It is a collaboration with Potent Whisper, a London based rapper and Spoken Word artist, and Child Rights International Network.
The lesson introduces the new piece, The Rhyming Guide to Joining the Army! and give students the opportunity to respond to it as unseen poetry to support their English Literature study. The poem also raises important citizenship questions about under 18 recruitment to the armed forces and the way it is promoted to young people.
We’re also really grateful Woodcraft Folk for previewing the video with us and providing an exemplar discussion, blending citizenship and literature in the video discussion provided.
It's good to leave some feedback.

Having seen the response this poem and animation got from a group of 15-16 year olds, I highly recommend it to fire creativity and citizenship thinking!
