AQA POETRY - Best way to approach comparison

AQA POETRY - Best way to approach comparison

Teaching comparison not knowing which poem the students will receive is exceptionally difficult. I realised that 'feelings', regardless of which poems they are confronted with, are a sure way of making sophisticated and thoughtful comparisons... Having taught this for the last few weeks of term (I arrived ta the idea late on in the year), their essays improved drastically and so too their confidence in comparison. Any feedback much appreciated.
