A full and detailed lesson with plenty that will challenge students. PowerPoint presentation includes: vocabulary explained, questions about every line of the poem, line by line technical analysis, about the author, and a 1000 word example essay has also been added. I have made a supplementary YouTube video, that can also be found here, which should help students when at home or revising. I really hope it is useful. This poem is no longer in the iGCSE anthology.

Songs of Ourselves - Volume 1 Part 4 - CIE 2023-25 - All Poems Analysed
Here you will find a detailed PowerPoint presentation for every single poem in the new iGCSE syllabus. In addition, there is a selection of 1000-word model essays responding to a variety of the poems to share with students. In other lessons, there are model paragraphs, colour-coded for clarity. Some of the poems have a supplementary YouTube video where I have broken down the poems for students to revise at home (more videos to come soon). The lessons have a very wide range of activities to engage students, and most poems have either line by line questions or line by line annotations (or both). This is all you need to be prepared to teach these 15 poems. I have also included a 16th poem (The Bay) that could be used as an "unseen" exam example. I have also made a full anthology for easy printing. 2 quid a poem! Poems covered here are: 1. The City Planners 2. The Planners 3. The Man With Night Sweats 4. Night Sweat 5. Rain 6. The Spirit Is Too Blunt An Instrument 7. From Long Distance 8. Funeral Blues 9. He Never Expected Much 10. The Telephone Call 11. A Consumer's Report 12. Request To A Year 13. On Finding A Small Fly Crushed In A Book 14. Ozymandias 15. Away, Melancholy 16. Bonus Poem (The Bay) 17. Full Printable Anthology (PDF)

Awesome SOW, excellent annotations and saved me a lot of time as a first time teacher of CIE! Thank you!
Clear, comprehensive and classroom ready. Excellent resource which can be used immediately or adapted into your own lessons. After this difficult year I do not have the time nor energy to prep all this before next term. This has saved me a ton of stress.
