Love Poetry: Tupac - Do for Love

Lesson Objective: To explore the different poetic and language techniques commonly used in poetry and music This is a lesson I did with a mixed ability year 8 class. I found that the group responded well to the fact that I was using rap poetry in their English Lesson. The Powerpoint is accompanied with 2 main tasks. The first task - students are given a slip of paper with either the name of a technique, the description of what that technique is or an example of that technique. They need to find the other students who have the information on the same technique. For example if a student had the “simile” technique, they would match this with the student who had the "this is when you compare something to another thing using the words ‘like’ or ‘as’. The second activity - Pupils will annotate their copies of the verse from the Tupac song.
